A two-step synthetic process is reported to fabricate porous ceria membranes by anodization of cerium metal foils with subsequent calcination. “Ribbon-like” structures were found to form the backbones of these porous frameworks. The hydrophobic nature of these membranes was revealed by water contact angle measurements.
