Self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) is applied for the production of porous supporting Ni-Al bases of solid-oxide fuel cells. The effect of synthesis conditions and the composition of source powders on the phase composition, microstructure, gas permeability, corrosion resistance, and other properties of obtained Ni-Al samples is investigated. The possibility is shown for the formation of solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) on the surface of porous Ni-Al plates. The cells have the structure Ni-ZrO3:Y 2O3 anode/ZrO3:Y2O3 electrolyte/La0.8Mn0.2SrO3 cathode and provide a specific power of 400 mW/cm2 at a temperature of 800 C.
