Abstract : In this study, preliminary experiments are conducted on an hydroxide ion-conducting electrolyte, which may have potential for application to the electrolysis of steam at intermediate temperatures. In this work the DC conductivity of wetLi5A104 samples has been measured as a function of temperatures and applied voltage. It is proposed that, under the conditions employed in this work, DC charge conduction is due to the transport of hydroxide ions derived from the LiOH contained in the structure, rather than by electronic species.
