In this paper we demonstrate the successful incorporation of oxyanions (borate, phosphate) into Ba1ySryCo0.8Fe0.2O3−δ (BSCF) cathode materials. For low levels of dopant, a small enhancement in the conductivity was observed; e.g. 31.6, 34.4 and 35.9 S·cm-1 for Ba0.33Sr0.67Co0.8Fe0.2O3−δ, Ba0.33Sr0.67Co0.76Fe0.19B0.05O3−δ and Ba0.33Sr0.67Co0.76Fe0.19P0.05O3−δ, respectively, at 700ºC. Most significantly, oxyanion doping was shown to improve the stability of the cubic form of BSCF at intermediate temperatures (especially for P-doping), helping to prevent the transition to a hexagonal cell, and maintaining its excellent electrical properties. The work shows the potential of oxyanion doping strategies to modify the performance of SOFC cathode materials.
