Zirconia micromonoliths prepared by the ice-templating method and sintered at high temperature present unique macroporous structures and mechanical properties of potential interest as catalyst carrier. The use of specific ice-shaping compounds in the ice-templating process leads to a honeycomb-like structure with hexagonally shaped microchannels running continuously throughout the micromonolith. The microchannels can be advantageously used for the deposition of a catalytically active meso/microporous layer, yielding a hierarchic porous structure which should facilitate access to the catalytic sites.
