It was tried to decompose benzene gas electrochemically by using electrochemical cell in the temperature range between 250 and 400°C, where 8 mol% Y2O3 doped ZrO2 (YSZ) well known as oxide-ion conductor was used for the electrolyte of electrochemical cell. Benzene gas was decomposed quantitatively to CO2 and H2O without any byproduct. The amounts of decomposed benzene increased with increasing the cell temperature or applied voltage (0-10 V) respectively, independent on the benzene concentration. The current increased with proportion to the square value of applied voltage.
