Abstract

Enhancing the stability of introduced metal catalysts on oxide surfaces is a major issue for infiltrated anodes in Solid Oxide Cells (SOC) and other related catalysis field. Stoichiometric SrTiO3 (STO) and A-site cation deficient LaxSr1 − 3x/2TiO3 (LST) were compared to investigate the influence of stoichiometry upon the contact between metal and oxide, in order to improve the bonding of catalyst and substrate. Optimization of oxidizing and reducing temperatures for Ni infiltration processes was performed to get good nanoparticles distribution on the perovskite surface. Thermogravimetry (TG) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis showed the formation of NiO, Ni after oxidation and reduction, respectively. Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) on a Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) was employed to characterize the nickel nanoparticles on the LST surface. No obvious elemental transfer happened between Ni and LST. The TEM images showed Ni nanoparticles bonded well to the A-site deficient perovskite with large contact area. TG analysis in reducing atmosphere indicates interactions between metal-oxide interactions in deficient samples. This may improve the Ni distribution on perovskite surface and further control the growth of Ni particles when heated at extreme temperature.
