ResumenThe influence of Ni content in Ni–CGO cermets on their electrical conductivity was investigated in order to create the most suitable microstructure. Ni–CGO (50/50, 45/55 and 40/60 wt%) powder mixtures were prepared by the polymeric organic complex solution method using ethyleneglycol as a polymerized soluble alcohol in water. By heat treatment a composite of ultrafine nickel oxide homogeneously dispersed in the CGO ceramic matrix was attained. After sintering of NiO–CGO composites in air at 1350 ◦C for several times and reducing treatment in N2 90%–H2 10% atmosphere, the microstructures showed a uniform distribution of porous metallic Ni particles surrounded by microporous spaces with total porosity (closed and opened) of ≈20–25%. The electrical properties of Ni–CGO cermets sintered at 1350 ◦C for 2 h were studied using impedance spectroscopy in the temperature range from 500 to about 700 ◦C in argon atmosphere. The Ni–CGO cermets showed metallic behaviour over all the range at temperatures studied, indicating a uniform and fine-grained microstructure in which the Ni–Ni particle contacts were predominant.
