The transition metal oxides have been of interest as bifunctional electrocatalysts for bifunctional air electrodes. The amorphous citrate precursor (ACP) process has been optimized to prepare perovskite (La0.6Ca0.4CoO3) and pyrochlore (Pb2Ru2O6) powders with high surface area, and consequent improvement of The electrocatalytic performance in an air electrode with thermal treatment. PTFE -bonded gas diffusion electrodes loaded with perovskitc and pyrochlore catalysts showed good bifunctional performances. The electrodes were fairly stable up to 100 hour in the galvanostatic mode at ${\pm}25mA/cm^2$, from which these electrodes offer promise as practical bifunctional air electrodes.
