Highly sinterable yttria-doped ceria powder (YO1·5)x (CeO2)1-x (x = 0·1-0·33) was fabricated by an optimized coprecipitation route. Compacted bodies could be sintered to impermeability at 1200°C and near full density at 1300°C, among the lowest temperatures reported for doped ceria densification. Ceria diffusion is important above 1400°C. Excellent conduction properties were observed: high ionic conductivity (6·5 S m-1 at 750°C for Ce0·8Y0·2O1·9), low activation energy (0·7 eV) and vanishing grain-boundary resistance.
