Perovskite-type SrCo0.8Fe0.2O3-δ (SCF) has been prepared by a liquid citrate method and used to produce O2-CO2 gas mixture for oxyfuel combustion. Oxygen is desorbed and an oxygen-enriched carbon dioxide stream is obtained when SCF is exposed in a carbon dioxide stream at high temperature. Oxygen is adsorbed when SCF is regenerated in an air stream. A carbonation-reaction mechanism for O2-desorption has been identified with the evidences of XRD and TGA analysis. It is found that the theoretical oxygen sorption capacity decreases with the increase of temperature. The sorption kinetics over a temperature range of 700-900 °C has been examined by TGA experiment. Both desorption and sorption processes exhibit a high reaction rate in an initial stage followed by a slower rate in a second stage. It is difficult to reach the theoretical oxygen sorption capacity during the whole temperature range due to the slow oxygen desorption rate. Optimal temperatures for oxygen sorption and desorption processes are determined to be 900 and 850 °C, respectively. Multiple sorption and desorption cycles indicate that SCF sorbent has high reactivity and cyclic stability. Comparison with the reference La0.1Sr0.9Co0.5Fe0.5O2.6 (LSCF) and Sr0.5Ca0.5Co0.5Fe0.5O2.47 (SCCF) sorbents shows that SCF has faster carbonation reaction at high temperature, i.e., 850 and 900 °C, and much higher theoretical oxygen sorption capacities.
