Li0.3(MgCoNiCuZn)0.7O-x% LiF (x=0, 5, 8, 10) composite ceramics are synthesized by solid state reaction. Influence of sintering aids of LiF on the crystal structure, microstructure and conductivity for Li0.3(MgCoNiCuZn)0.7O is investigated. The ratio of electronic conductivity to total conductivity for Li0.3(MgCoNiCuZn)0.7O is 4.3%. Electronic conductivity in Li0.3(MgCoNiCuZn)0.7O cannot be ignored. The total conductivity of composite ceramics is improved with the addition of LiF sintering aids. The highest total electrical conductivity of 7.12×10-5 S cm-1 was obtained at x=8 at room temperature, with the activation energy of 0.31 eV. The electronic conductivity of Li0.3(MgCoNiCuZn)0.7O-8% LiF sample is 5.22×10-7 S cm-1 , which is 100 times lower than its total electrical conductivity.
