The interaction between metals and ceramics is discussed from a thermodynamic point of view. The types of interaction which can occur at the metal-ceramic interface are investigated using electromotive force measurements in the test cells: metal |oxide melt| O2 |platinum. Preliminary results indicate that oxidation reactions can be distinguished from redox reactions.
