Catalytic operations, achieving considerable energy savings, continue getting wider application especially in clean energy systems. Perovskite materials, owing to their chemical and thermal stability, can be conveniently used as catalysts and electrode materials at wide temperature ranges. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) offers a new and abundant source of hydrogen, the ultimate energy carrier. In the present work, change in electrical conductivity of catalysts obtained by adding molybdenum (Mo) and vanadium (V) as B to the perovskite structure with lanthanum (La) and strontium (Sr) as A and A ', respectively, has been studied within a temperature range of up to 1100 K. Samples La0.75Sr0.25MoO3 and LaSr0.5V0.5O3 demonstrated the highest values of conductivity at 1100 K. At lower temperatures, Cr-added Mo and V catalysts La0.9Sr0.1Cr0.5Mo0.5O3 and La0.9Sr0.1Cr0.5V0.5O3 had higher conductivity, closely followed by LaSr0.5V0.5O3.
