In order to improve oxygen reduction performances of an air electrode using perovskite type La0.7Ca0.3CoO3 as an electrocatalyst, a layered double hydroxide (LDH) containing magnesium and aluminum was examined as an ion-conducting additive. Although the addition of LDH impeded gas permeation of the catalyst layer of the electrode, it was effective in reducing charge transfer resistance of the electrode, and as a result, the oxygen reduction reaction of the air electrode was remarkably enhanced.
