Lanthanum Strontium Manganite (20%) Cathode Powder (LSM20-P)

Cathode powder for non-aqueous processing. LSM is readily formulated into an ink for coating onto electrolyte substrates. Tape casting is possible as well. LSM works well at higher temperatures and is normally used with zirconia-based electrolytes. Slightly A-site deficient (non-stoichiometric)


Formulation: La0.80 Sr0.20 Mn O3-
Surface area: 4-8 m2/g
Particle Size (d50): 0.3 to 0.6 m

Lanthanum Strontium Manganite offers standard and custom formulations of lanthanum strontium manganite (LSM)electrode materials. LSM is the most widely used cathode material for solid oxide fuel cells and other electrochemical cells used with YSZ based ceramic electrolytes. Its thermal expansion matches that of yttrium stabilized zirconia, and LSM provides good electrochemical performance at temperatures above 800C. Specifications on our standard LSM product are provided in the table below and representative data are provided in the figures on the reverse. Custom formulations can be delivered typically within three weeks of ordering.


  • Electrode material for zirconia-based (YSZ) ceramic electrolytes.
  • Cathode material for solid oxide fuel cells for operating temperatures above 800C.
  • Catalysts and sensors.


  • Powder characteristics designed for screen printing processes.
  • High crystalline-phase and chemical purity.
  • Consistent properties batch-to-batch.
