Ce–HMS mesoporous materials were prepared by incipient wetness method starting from HMS synthesized in acid condition. The effect of ceriumquantity, in the range of Ce/Si atomic ratio 0.02–0.3, on its structure and properties was investigated. Results showed that the HMS hexagonal structure was maintained after the cerium adding. Furthermore, the surface area and the pore volume were reduced. The presence of the cerianite nanoparticles located within the HMS channels up to 0.05, thus covering the HMS surface at higher Ce/Si atomic ratio,was observed. The catalytic performances of the materials were tested in ethanol partial oxidation reaction
