The Ruddlesden-Popper ferrite Sr3Fe2O6+δ and its titania-doped derivatives Sr3Fe2-xTixO6+δ, where 03Fe2O6+δ and Sr3Fe0.8Ti1.2 O6+δ in the temperature range 750-1000°C and oxygen partial pressures (pO2) varying between 10-20 and 0.5 atm revealed that the predominant partial conductivity of electrons is proportional to pO2 -1/4 in the low pO2 region, while the predominant partial contribution of holes to the conductivity is proportional to pO2 +1/4 in the high pO2 range. The pressure-independent oxygen ion conductivity is found to decrease with the increase in titanium content. A possible pathway for oxygen ion migration is discussed in relation to disorder in the oxygen sublattice and titanium doping.
