In this work, C349 powders were obtained by solid state reaction of a mixture containing cobalt oxide and mollusk shell powder as Ca (calcium) source. Porous electrodes of C349 were screen printed on both sides of dense ceria-gadolinia substrates. The electrochemical performance of the electrodes was evaluated by impedance spectroscopy as a function of temperature and oxygen partial pressure (pO2). Results indicated area specific resistances of 1.38 and 2.16 ohm.cm2 at 800 °C and pO2 of 1 and 0.2 atm., respectively.
