Influence of porosity on the electrical properties of La-9.33(SiO4)(6)O-2 oxyapatite

Abstract

Oxyapatites are very promising materials in terms of ionic conductivity. They can be considered as a potential electrolyte for fuel cells as SOFC. The influence of porosity on the electrical properties of La-9.33(SiO4)(6)O-2 oxyapatite is reported here. Hot pressed pellets with various densification ratios have been characterized by the complex impedance method. The high frequency response associated with the bulk contribution is much more affected by the porosity than the grain boundaries contribution: as a consequence, the electrical behaviour of the samples has been considered in assimilating the porous ceramics to composite materials made of apatite with various amounts of air inclusions. Thus, the porosity dependence of conductivity, activation energy and permittivity are reported here. A percolation threshold has been highlighted for porosity values greater than 30%, involving great lowering of the electrical performances.
