Double-perovskites Sr2MMoO6 (M ) Co, Ni) have been investigated as anode materials for a solid
oxide fuel cell. At room temperature, both Sr2CoMoO6 and Sr2NiMoO6 are tetragonal (I4/m). X-ray
absorption spectroscopy confirmed the presence of Co2+/Mo6+ and Ni2+/Mo6+ pairs in the oxygenstoichiometric compounds. The samples contain a limited concentration of oxygen vacancies in the reducing
atmospheres at an anode. Reoxidation is facile below 600 °C; they become antiferromagnetic at low
temperatures TN ) 37 and 80 K for M ) Co and Ni, respectively. As an anode with a 300 µm thick
La0.8Sr0.2Ga0.83Mg0.17O2.815 electrolyte and SrFe0.2Co0.8O3-δ as a cathode, Sr2CoMoO6 exhibited maximum
power densities of 735 mW/cm2 in H2 and 527 mW/cm2 in wet CH4 at 800 °C; Sr2NiMoO6 shows a
notable power output only in dry CH4. The high performance of Sr2CoMoO6 in wet CH4 may be due to
its catalytic effect on steam reforming of methane, but some degradation of the structure that occurred
in CH4 obscures identification of the...
