The continuous production of LaCrO3 particles (average edge size 639 nm, cube-shaped) by continuous hydrothermal flow synthesis using supercritical water is reported for the first time. By varying the reaction conditions, it was possible to suggest a reaction mechanism for the formation of this perovskite material. Moreover, dual-phase oxygen transport membranes were manufactured from the as-synthesized LaCrO3 particles and (ZrO2)0.89(Y2O3)0.01(Sc2O3)0.10 (10Sc1YSZ), and oxygen permeation fluxes up to 5 × 10–8 mol cm–2 s–1 were measured on a 1 mm thick membrane.
