Attention is drawn to the possible involvement of the surface exchange kinetics in limiting the rate of oxygen permeation through mixed-conducting oxide ceramics. A theoretical approach is provided with which it is possible to distinguish between surface exchange- and bulk diffusion controlled kinetics of oxygen permeation. New results on the oxygen permeability of perovskites La0.8Sr0.2CoO3−σ and SrCo0.8Fe0.2O3−σ are presented. The importance of the exchange reaction re to diffusion in limiting overall oxygen transport through (La,Sr)(Co,Fe)O3−σ perovskite-type oxides is emphasized.
