When the dimensionality of layered materials is reduced to the physical limit, an ultimate two-dimensional (2D) anisotropy and/or confinement effect may bring about extraordinary physical and chemical properties. Layered double hydroxides (LDHs), bearing abundant hydroxyl groups covalently bonded within 2D host layers, have been proposed as inorganic anion conductors. However, typical hydroxyl ion conductivities for bulk or lamellar LDHs, generally up to 10(-3) S cm(-1), are considered not high enough for practical applications...

A new method based on one-step solvothermal reaction is demonstrated to synthesize ultrathin Ni-Co layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanosheets which grow directly on a flexible carbon fiber cloth (NiCo-LDH/CFC). Through using 2-methylimidazole as complex and methanol as solvent, the as-prepared NiCo-LDH/CFC shows a (003) facet preferential growth and an expanded interlayer spacing structure, resulting in a unique 3D porous nanostructure with the thickness of nanosheets around 5-7 nm that shows high energy storage performance...

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) with two-dimensional lamellar structures show excellent electrocatalytic properties. However, the catalytic activity of LDHs needs to be further improved as the large lateral size and thickness of the bulk material limit the number of exposed active sites. However, the development of efficient strategies to exfoliate bulk LDHs into stable monolayer LDH nanosheets with more exposed active sites is very challenging. On the other hand, the intrinsic activity of monolayer LDH nanosheets can be tuned by surface engineering...

Transition metal phosphide (TMP) nanostructures have stimulated increasing interest for use in water splitting owing to their abundant natural sources and high activity for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER). Typically, the preparation of hierarchical TMPs involves the utilization of expensive or dangerous phosphorus sources, and, in particular, the understanding of topotactic transformations of the precursors to crystalline phases-which could be utilized to enhance electrocatalytic performance-remains very limited...

Manipulating the local pH within nanoconfinement is essential in nanofluidics technology and its applications. Since the conventional strategy utilizes the overlapping of an electric double layer formed for charge compensation by protons near a negatively charged pore-wall surface, pH variation within a pore is limited to the acidic side. To achieve the variation at the alkaline side, we developed a system comprising a hydrophobic pore-wall surface and aqueous solution containing hydrophobic cations. Beyond a threshold cation concentration, a nanopore is filled with the second phase where the cations are remarkably enriched due to surface-induced phase transition (SIFT) originating from the hydrophobic effect...

The corrosion issue with acidic and alkaline water electrolysers can be avoided by developing water oxidation catalysts performing efficiently under benign conditions. In this Letter, we report that NiFe-borate layer can be generated on NiFe-layered double hydroxide nanosheet array hydrothermally grown on carbon cloth via in-situ electrochemical surface derivation process in potassium borate (K-Bi) solution. The resulting 3D NiFe-LDH@NiFe-Bi nanoarray (NiFe-LDH@NiFe-Bi/CC) demonstrates high activity for water oxidation, demanding overpotentials of 444 and 363 mV to achieve 10 mA cm-2 in 0...

Bone tissue engineering scaffolds for the reconstruction of large bone defects should simultaneously promote osteogenic differentiation and avoid postoperative infection. Herein, we develop, for the first time, Ag-loaded MgSrFe-layered double hydroxide/chitosan (Ag-MgSrFe/CS) composite scaffold. This scaffold exhibits three-dimensional interconnected macroporous structure with a pore size of 100-300 μm. The layered double hydroxide nanoplates in the Ag-MgSrFe/CS show lateral sizes of 200-400 nm and thicknesses of ∼50 nm, and the Ag nanoparticles with particle sizes of ∼20 nm are uniformly dispersed on the scaffold surfaces...

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) have been considered as effective phases for the remediation of aquatic environments, to remove anionic contaminants mainly through anion exchange mechanisms. Here, a combination of batch isotherm experiments and X-ray techniques was used to examine molybdate (MoO4(2-)) sorption mechanisms on CaAl LDHs with increasing loadings of molybdate. Advanced modeling of aqueous data shows that the sorption isotherm can be interpreted by three retention mechanisms, including two types of edge sites complexes, interlayer anion exchange, and CaMoO4 precipitation...

An ordered mesoporous Mg-Al layered double hydroxide (meso-LDH350) with a fairly high Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area (126m(2)g(-1)) has been facilely synthesized and then evaluated for the adsorptive removal of bromate from aqueous solutions. Adsorbents were characterized by a variety of techniques (e.g., XRD, FTIR, SEM, TG-DSC, N2 physisorption, XPS, etc.). The adsorption studies indicated that the presence of background electrolytes and competitive anions can obviously repress the uptake of bromate on LDHs...

The Br(-) ion intercalated layered double hydroxide (LDH) of Li and Al obtained from the bayerite-Al(OH)3 precursor crystallizes in a structure different from that of the gibbsite-Al(OH)3 derived counterpart. Additionally, it undergoes temperature- and humidity-induced reversible interpolytype transformations. The dehydrated LDH (T ≈ 120 °C) adopts a structure of hexagonal symmetry (space group P3̅1m) and comprises a stacking of the metal hydroxide layers arranged one above another. On cooling and rehydration, the LDH adopts a structure of monoclinic symmetry with a stepwise increase in the stacking angle, β...

Magnesium aluminum-layered double-hydroxide nanoparticles (LDH NPs) are promising drug-delivery vehicles for gene therapy, particularly for siRNA interference; however, the interactions between oligo-DNA and LDH surfaces have not been adequately elucidated. Through a mechanistic study, oligo-DNA initially appears to rapidly bind strongly to the LDH outer surfaces through interactions with their phosphate backbones via ligand exchange with OH(-) on Mg(2+) centers and electrostatic forces with Al(3+). These initial interactions might precede diffusion into interlayer spaces, and this knowledge can be used to design better gene therapy delivery systems...

Mg-Al-Cl layered double hydroxide (Cl-LDH) was prepared to simultaneously remove Cu(II) and Cr(VI) from aqueous solution. The coexisting Cu(II) (20mg/L) and Cr(VI) (40mg/L) were completely removed within 30min by Cl-LDH in a dosage of 2.0g/L; the removal rate of Cu(II) was accelerated in the presence of Cr(VI). Moreover, compared with the adsorption of single Cu(II) or Cr(VI), the adsorption capacities of Cl-LDH for Cu(II) and Cr(VI) can be improved by 81.05% and 49.56%, respectively, in the case of coexisting Cu(II) (200mg/L) and Cr(VI) (400mg/L)...

Porous magnesium-aluminium layered double hydroxides (LDH) were prepared through intercalation and decomposition of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This process generates oxygen gas nano-bubbles that pierce holes in the layered structure of the material by local pressure build-up. The decomposition of the peroxide can be triggered by microwave radiation or chemically by reaction with iodide (I(-)) ions. The carbonate LDH version [Mg0.80Al0.20(OH)2](CO3)0.1∙mH2O was synthesized by microwave-assisted urea coprecipitation and further modified by iodide or H2O2 intercalation...

Obtaining high efficiency room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) by employing non-noble metals poses two challenges: (1) strengthening spin-orbit coupling of excitons to improve the rate of intersystem crossing (ISC) by using non-noble metals with small-atomic-number; (2) employing structural confinement to enhance radiation relaxation because harsh conditions, including carefully selected matrices, rigid solid-state crystalline structure and low temperature, are commonly needed. Here, layered double hydroxides (LDHs) with orderly non-noble metal arrangements were used as an inorganic matrix to activate RTP of carbon dots (CDs)...

Contaminants zinc (Zn) and arsenate (As) often coexist in soils. However, little is known concerning the impacts of coexisting As on Zn adsorption and precipitation on soil minerals. In the present study, adsorption and precipitation of Zn on γ-alumina in the absence and presence of arsenate was investigated employing batch experiments and Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy. Results indicated that Zn formed edge-sharing tetrahedral surface complexes at pH 5.5 and Zn-Al LDH-like (layered double hydroxide) precipitates at pH 7...
