Title: Silver diffusion and ionic conduction in Ag/sub 6/I/sub 4/WO/sub 4/ solid electrolyte

Abstract

This paper studies the diffusion of silver (Ag/sup 110m/) and the Haven ratio found for the first time at temperatures between 110 and 190/sup 0/C. A mixture of the salts AgI and Ag/sub 2/WO/sub 4/ (molar ratio) was obtained by joint precipitation with silver nitrate from solutions containing stoichiometric amounts of sodium iodide and tungstate. The conductivity and diffusion of the silver radiotracer Ag/sup 110m/ in solid electrolytes of the alpha-AgI type are measured. The activity distributions in the samples after homogenizing and the temperature dependence of the diffusion coefficients are shown.

  • Low temperature sintering of YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub y} ceramics by various Ag compounds was studied by in situ resistivity measurement using a four-probe method and silver ionic conductivity measurement using four silver ion conduction electrodes of Ag-{beta}{double prime}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}. Even silver ionic compounds promoted sintering, indicating that the Ag{sup +} ion promotes sintering in the grain boundaries. The activation energies of Ag{sup +} ionic conductivities of the Ag-added samples (0.2 {minus} 1.4 eV) were much lower than those in the YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O bulk (2.3 {minus} 2.5 eV), indicating that the Ag{sup +} ion easily diffuses in the grainmore » boundaries at low temperature.« less
  • A new high ionic conductivity solid Ag/sub 6/I/sub 4/WO/sub 4/ has been found in the system AgI-Ag/sub 2/WO/sub 4/ at ambient temperature. This compound has a silver ion conductivity of 0.047 (ohm.cm)/sup -1/ at 25/sup 0/C and an activation energy for conduction of 3.6 KCaL/mole between 20/sup 0/ and 293/sup 0/C. The transport number measurement using Tubandt's method shows that the transport number of silver ions in this compound is 1.00 within the experiment error. An Ag/Ag/sub 6/I/sub 4/WO/sub 4//I/sub 2/ solid-electrolyte cell shows an open-circuit voltage of 637 MV which agrees well with the value of 686.7 MV calculatedmore » from deltag degrees of the cell reaction at 21/sup 0/C. Characteristics of the solid-state cells using Ag/sup 6/I/sub 4/WO/sub 4/ as the electrolyte have been investigated. The phase diagram of the system AgI-Ag/sub 2/WO/sub 4/ has been determined also. 14 references.« less
  • The influence of calcium oxide on the electro-conductivity of mixed oxides (Ce, Zr/O/sub 2/) was studied, and the character of conductivity was determined for several specimens, (0.75 CeO/sub 2/ - 0.25 ZrO/sub 2/) + CaO at 500 to 1000 deg C. The composition 0.75 CeO/sub 2/ - 0.25 ZrO/sub 2/ was considered as a single component with known maximum conductivity. The tests show that with small admixtures of calcium oxide, the ionic conductivity increases but the general conductivity decreases. Calcium oxide additions to zirconium dioxide and cerium dioxide separately induce an increase only in the general conductivity. Moreover, the highermore » the content of CaO in solid solutions, the larger the ionic conductivity. In the triple solution CeO/sub 2/-ZrO/sub 2/-CaO, oxygen ions are carriers of the ionic conductivity component. The electronic conductivity in solid solutions of CeO/sub 2/-ZrO/sub 2/ appears with the partial reduction of Ce/ sup 4+/ to Ce/sup 3+/. Measurements on solid electrolytes in contact with gases with high partial oxygen pressures (1.0 to 0.2 atm) show that with 20 to 40 mole% CaO the ionic conductivity is approximately -100%, while with small oxygen pressure (10/sup -7/ to 10/sup -25/ atm) electronic conductivity prevails. The ionic conductivity in the examined material reaches a maximum at 750 deg C. (R.V.J.)« less
