The impregnation of electrode precursor solutions is a very powerful technique for creating novel electrode microstructures constrained within preformed scaffolds. Here we report on the microstructural evolution of Mn-containing perovskites impregnated into yttria stabilized zirconia scaffolds on heating and redox cycling. Good performances have previously been reported for SOFC anodes with similar structure, and our objective is to better understand the origins of this good performance. For La Sr Cr Mn O a remarkable thin coating with microfissures is formed on the scaffold after firing the electrode precursors at 1200 °C, and such behavior can be considered as wetting of one oxide by..
