The eledrocatalysis of oxygen reduction readion by lanthanum strontium manganate (La,, Sr,, MnO,) (LSM), lanthanum calcium manganate (Lao,5 Ca,, MnOd (LCM) and lanthanum barium manganate (La,,Ba,,MnO3 (LBM) has been studied by linear sweep cydic voltammetry using rotating ringdisc electrode technique in alkaline medium. From the ringdisc data and other kinetic parameters it has been assumed that oxygen redudion occurs by dissociative chernisorption at low werpotentials. At higher overpotentials the formation of hydrogen peroxide has been observed on these electrocatalysts. The apparent exchange current density values for oxygen redudion on LSM. LCM and LBM have been found to be 2x lo-', 5x 10-'and 4x 10-~~crnre-s~pe ctively, while the corresponding Talel slopes are 0.100, 0.1 15 and 0.1 15 V per decade. The possible readion mechanism lor eledroiedudion of oxygen on these oxide catalysts has been discussed.
