The porous size alumina membrane was prepared by anodic oxidation with current method in an aqueous solution of oxalic acid. The aluminum metal plate was pretreated with thermal oxidation, chemical polishing and electropolishing before anodic oxidation. Membrane thickness and pore size distribution were investigated with several anodizing conditions; reaction temperature, cumulative charge, electrolyte concentration and current density. The porous alumina membrane obtained was $55{\sim}75{\mu}m$ thick with straight micropore of 45~100nm. Also, the porous alumina membrane has an uniform pore diameter and pore distribution. It was inorganic ultrafiltration membrane as a kind of the ceramic membrane.
