Abstract: The silver electrode of negative-temperature-coefficient (NTC) Mn-Co-Ni-O ceramic thermistors was converted into a cathode in 0.01 M NaOH solution to induce hydrogen evolution by electrolysis of water, which resulted in an obvious increase in the room temperature resistance of the thermistors. It was proposed that atomic hydrogen generated by electrolysis of water induces an ambient temperature reduction in NTC ceramics and the change in resistance can be explained by the reduction of Mn4+ to Mn3+ in the octahedral sites of the spinel lattice. This hydrogen-induced degradation is especially important for the NTC chip thermistors used in surface mounting technology (SMT).
