In this work, ceria-doped electrolytes with general formula of Ce0.8Y0.2-xLaxO1.9 (x=0.00; 0.05; 0.10; 0.15; 0.20) were synthesized by combustion method, using glycine as a fuel. The phase identification and morphology of the powders was studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), surface area measurements (BET) and Raman spectroscopy. The consistency of particle sizes, calculated by the Scherrer formula, and BET measurements suggests that all as-synthesized powders were composed of weakly agglomerated crystallites. After the sintering process (1450 °C/5h) all pellets reach relative densities above 94% of the theoretical density. The contributions of grains and grain boundaries to the total conductivity, were investigated by a.c. impedance spectroscopy, in temperature range of 200-500 °C. The results show that the substitution of the yttrium by lanthanum mainly affects the grain boundary conductivity.
