Seven zinc aluminum layered double hydroxides (ZnAl LDHs), [Zn1–xAlx(OH)2Ax·nH2O], A = NO3–, Cl–, or CO32–, prepared by the urea and coprecipitation synthesis methods were investigated to determine how the synthesis parameters (pH, metal ion concentration, and postsynthesis treatment) affect the local (atomic) and long (global) range structure of the LDH product. Sample composition, purity, crystal defects, and other structural aspects of the LDH products were obtained from powder X-ray… CONTINUE READING
