Five Gd1-xSrxFe0.8Co0.2O3-δ perovskites were synthesized using the glycine-nitrate process. The compounds were evaluated as solid oxide fuel cell cathodes using cone-shaped electrodes and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. It was shown that the electrochemical activity depended on the amount of strontium in the perovskite; the main difference seemed to be whether the perovskite is a single or a two-phase compound. However, high-strontium-substituted Fe-Co-based perovskites have slightly higher performances than the low-strontium-substituted Fe-Co-based perovskites, as determined by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy on cone-shaped electrodes.
