Mesoporous yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) and YSZ–NiO have been prepared for the first time using Pluronic P103 as a structure-directing agent and inorganic chlorides as precursors in a nonaqueous medium. After being fired at 500 °C for 2 h, mesostructured YSZ has a BET surface area of about 146 m2 g−1, with an average pore size of 3.8 nm, while mesostructured YSZ–NiO has a BET surface area of about 108 m2 g−1, with an average pore size of 4.5 nm.
