Plate-like CeO 2 particles were successfully synthesized by calcination of Ce 2(CO 3) 3·8H 2O single plate crystals at 400 °C. In comparison with commercial CeO 2 nanoparticles, the homogeneous plate-like CeO 2 particles showed lower photocatalytic and oxidation catalytic activity, higher slipping characteristic (comfort of use) and higher pearlescence (gloss value) as well as excellent UV-shielding ability, indicating the potential application as a new type of multifunctional material.
