Suspensions of NiO-La1.95Ca0.05Zr2O7-delta (NiO-LCZ) composite material have been prepared in isopropanol medium using iodine and acetylacetone as dispersants. The effect of iodine concentration on suspension stability, electrical conductivity, and suspension pH are studied in detail to optimize the suspension chemistry. Electrophoretic deposition has been successfully conducted on conducting substrate (steel plate) to fabricate NiO-LCZ thin particulate films. Deposition kinetics have been studied in detail to optimize the process parameters. Good quality particulate films of such composite on steel plates are obtained at an applied voltage of 60 V for 3 min. The optimized suspension chemistry and process parameters thus obtained are then used to fabricate NiO-LCZ composite films onto nonconducting porous ceramic substrate by placing a conducting plate at the reverse side of the porous substrate. The deposited films along with the ceramic substrates are co-fired at 1400 degrees C for 6 h in reducing atmosphere (5% hydrogen in argon) to produce a good quality dense Ni-LCZ film of thickness similar to 40 mu m. The hydrogen permeation flux of the developed cermet membrane has been measured and it reveals that NiLCZ could be used as a potential membrane for hydrogen separation at high temperature.
