Metallic samples of separated Cerium isotopes were prepared by chemically converting Cerium dioxide to the sesquioxide form with a high yield and subsequently reduced in vacuo with Thorium metal powder.

The Cerium metal was obtained in a form suitable for preparing 0.1–2.0 mg/cm2 cyclotron targets.
