1. A method for preparing a porous inorganic coating on a porous support, which comprises:

  • providing a porous support comprising a first end, a second end, and a plurality of inner channels having surfaces defined by porous walls and extending through the support from the first end to the second end;

    modifying the inner channel surfaces of the support by applying to the inner channel surfaces a composition comprising an organic pore-filling material selected from protein particles, starch particles, synthetic polymer particles, and combinations thereof;

    applying to the modified inner channel surfaces a coating comprising inorganic particles; and

    heating the coated support to remove the organic pore-filling material, leaving a porous inorganic coating on the porous support.
