Porous oxide ceramics are important for a variety of applications such as thermal insulation, filtration, biomedical, and catalyst substrates. These ceramics may be classified into four basic structures: tangled fiber networks, closed cell structures, open cell structures, and membranes. Several processes have been developed to make these porous ceramics. Variations of standard methods and novel processes offer a flexible and creative approach to porous ceramics. This work reviews processing of ceramics exhibiting tangle fiber network, closed cell, open cell, and membrane structures.
