Perovskite oxides such as ferrites have been widely investigated for their remarkable electrochemical activity as SOFC electrodes. However, their phase instability in reducing conditions remains an issue for anode application. The role of Mn substitution into B-site of La0.6Sr0.4FeO3-δ (LSF) perovskite oxide was investigated. New insights on the structural evolution of La0.6Sr0.4Fe0.8Mn0.2O3-δ (LSFMn) upon high temperature reduction were revealed. In oxidizing atmosphere, Mn substitution reduces the oxygen vacancy concentration while, switching to reducing conditions, it drives the transition from rhombohedral perovskite to single Ruddlesden-Popper phase, affecting the Fe0 exsolution. Redox-cycles of LSFMn were investigated and the properties of re-oxidized compounds were highlighted. The effect of Mn substitution on perovskite conductivity was also evaluated both in oxidizing and reducing conditions.
