A series of silica-supported cerium oxide samples having various cerium content were prepared by conventional impregnation method, followed by calcination in air. Ce LIII-edge XANES study revealed that highly dispersed cerium oxide species on silica surface were predominantly in trivalent oxidation state and cerium oxide nano-particles on silica contain mainly tetravalent cation like as CeO2 bulk oxide. This elucidated that UV absorption band at 265 nm is assignable to Ce(III) species dispersed on silica.
