The redox behavior of cerium is responsible for its high technological importance since ceria serves as a potential material in assorted applications. Changes in the optical, electrical, magnetic, and catalytic behavior of ceria can be brought about by employing different methodologies and reaction conditions. The high thermal and structural stability of ceria offers its utilization as a host lattice for various doping schemes. The incorporation of dopant elements beautifies the lattice by generating oxygen vacancies and thereby creating various interesting properties. Aiming with the stabilization of ceria and ceria-based compounds in nano-dimensions also opens up various new possibilities to explore it further for numerous useful applications.

Keywords: Cerium, Cerium-based materials, Characterization, Nanomaterials, Synthesis.
