The objective of the present study is to obtain the electrolyte material YSZ at low cost via sol gel, through exploration of the index rate between the complexing agents and the metallic salts (HMTA / metallic salts) from 1 to 5, prepared by a polymeric way in a sol gel process. We show an easy method that could be used in the industrial scale in order to obtain solid electrolyte material for its application in SOFC to operate at temperatures in the range of 700 800°C. This study has as reference the papers from Lenormand and Rieu about their synthesis of zirconium substituted to 8% of yttrium (CYSZ= 0.2 mol*L-1 metallic salts concentration-). The presence of the phase in the materials has been confirmed by X-ray diffraction assisted by thermal analysis tests, for indexes from 2 to 5 at a temperature of 1000°C for 5 hours at a calcination rate (from amorphous dust obtained at 400°C) of 1000°C per hour. The grain size mean for crystalline powder has an average near 50 nm and standard deviation close to 9 nm, it was confirmed by scanning electron microscope (SEM).
