The mesoporous NiO-SDC was synthesized using a cationic surfactant (cetyl-trimethylammonium bromide; CTAB) for obtaining wide triple-phase boundary (TPB) in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The microstructure of mesoporous NiO-SDC was characterized by XRD, SEM, BET, and HRTEM and the results showed that the mesoporous NiO-SDC with 6.3 nm pores could be obtained. After calcined at 600 °C, the surface area of NiO-SDC was 206 m2/g, which was sufficiently high for providing large TPB in SOFC anode. In addition, FT-IR measurements revealed that Ni(OH)2 and SDC were incorporated with amine group of CTAB.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
