    Abstract: In this work, we synthesized calcium aluminates doped with trivalent cerium ions (Ce3+) by gel process with ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) as a chelating agent. The synthesized material was characterized by means of thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis and spectrofluorimetry. The results were similar to literature.

    Keywords: Calcium aluminate, cerium ions, luminescence.
