The surface oxygen exchange kinetics of bismuth oxide stabilized with 25 mol% erbia (BE25) has been studied in the temperature and pO2 ranges 773–1,023 K and 0.1– 0.95 atm, respectively, using pulse-response 18O–16O isotope exchange measurements. The results indicate that BE25 exhibits a comparatively high exchange rate, which is rate determined by the dissociative adsorption of oxygen. Defect chemical considerations and the observed pO2 1=2 dependence of the rate of dissociative oxygen adsorption suggest electron transfer to intermediate superoxide ions as the rate determining step in surface oxygen exchange on BE25
