This chapter presents a state-of-art brief review on anode materials for
SOFC. Materials, processing and synthesis routes to attain porous anodes are
highlighted. Especial attention is given to Ni-ceramic phase (especially fluorite-type
structure ceramics) cermets. Some aspects about prospects and problems of the
currently developed electrodes materials are elucidated. Electrodes for intermediate
temperature SOFCs (IT-SOFCs) are discussed in relation to other conventional
electrodes. The electrochemical characterization of anodes, as mixed ionic-electronic
conductors, is briefly outlined.
