Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is a device that could environmentally friendly and high efficiently (with an efficiency of over 90%) transform chemical energy of a fuel into elec¬¬t¬r¬icity and heat. As an electrochemical device, SOFC consists of electrolyte and electrodes, an anode and a cathode. Typically, cell is manufactured on the anode, the anode is in fact the basis of all of the cell. It does not only allow the passage of fuel oxidation chemical reactions, but can withstand the thermomechanical stress in the reducing and oxidizing atmospheres. The article gives a brief overview of the issues addressed in the creation of a structure of the anode, which meets the requirements of its properties. Full text download
