Cerium is the most abundant metal of rare-earth elements. It can be used to make materials such as phosphors and alloys, that have applications in various applied fields (like electronics, magnetics and heterogeneous catalysis) and devices (like catalytic converters and gas mantles).

Cerium-Based Materials: Synthesis, Properties and Applications presents detailed knowledge about cerium materials. Starting with the history of cerium-based materials, it gives an introduction to the synthesis of chemicals like cerium oxides and composites. This is followed by information about characterization of cerium nanoparticles and industrial applications of cerium-based materials, with a focus on catalysis, biomedical engineering and pharmaceutical chemistry.

This book is an essential reference for researchers and chemical engineers who want a summary of cerium materials and its applications.


Researchers in inorganic chemistry, materials scientists, chemical engineers


Cerium is the most abundant metal of rare-earth elements. It can be utilized in various fields of application, such as phosphors, alloys, magnetics, catalysis, catalytic converters and gas mantles. China has been the biggest producer of rare-earth elements in the last decades. Cerium shows +4, +3, +2, and +1 oxidation states but +4 is the most stable oxidation state. It is biologically inactive as well as non-toxic for humans. Cerium oxide (Ceria or CeO2) and ceria-based materials have been explored in various applications in academia and industries such as catalysts, pharmaceuticals, electrochemistry, sensor, etc. Cerium-based materials are mostly used in heterogeneous catalysis and other various fields. As per our knowledge, there is no such book that can summarize the cerium-based materials. Hence, in this book, Cerium-based materials are summarized with their application in various fields such as industrial, catalytic, biomedical, and so on. This book will explain the history of cerium/ cerium-based materials, their synthesis, and their properties chapter wise. We sincerely hope that this book will be a great help to the researchers. We look forward to your observations.
