A series of six cathodes Sr0.15La0.85MnO3 (SLM) on yttria-stabilized zirconia with different morphology of the electrode/electrolyte interface were characterized by ac impedance and dc polarization measurements. It is found that the electrode kinetics at elevated temperature (945°C) are governed by two serial processes. An activation process can be identified to occur at high cathodic overpotential, whereas a transport process competes with charge-transfer at comparatively low overpotential. Attention is drawn to the profound change in the electrocatalytic properties of Sr0.15La0.85MnO3 upon current passage and its influence in elucidation of the interfacial kinetics.
