Solid-oxide fuel cells are efficient devices for the conversion of chemical to electrical energy and a typical solid-oxide fuel cell consists of a solid electrolyte, cathode, and anode. In the last few decades, researchers have been working extensively on materials development for different components of these devices. In this review article, we briefly discuss the requirements for different components and review prominent materials families explored by the scientific community. As the search for greener energy alternatives such as solid-oxide fuel cells have intensified manifold due to the climate change emergency, a substantial literature was produced on the materials development of these devices and, therefore, we believe a brief review article dedicated to the same will be valuable for the scientific community, particularly new young entrant researchers in the field.
