Oxygen evolution reaction (OER) has played a pivotal role in many energy conversion and storage technologies like water electrolysis, fuel cells, and metal-air batteries. However, the slow kinetics of OER limit the performance and commercialization of such devices. Herein, we report on NiFe LDH@Au hybrid nanoarrays on Ni foam for much enhanced OER. By hybridization of electronegative Au and NiFe LDH with intrinsic remarkable OER catalytic activity, this modular electrode could drive an overall ultrahigh-performance and robust OER in base with the demand of overpotentials of only 221, 235 and 270 mV to afford 50, 100 and 500 mA cm-2, respectively...

In this article, the authors report the adsorption of iodide by Mg/Al LDHs and thermally activated LDH materials in laboratory scale batch experiments. The optimal Mg/Al cation ratio was 3:1while the percentage iodide uptake increased with increasing adsorbent dose up to 1g/20mL of solution. The effect of initial iodide concentration was investigated using the Langmuir and Freundlich adsorption isotherm models, while the pseudo second order kinetic model appeared to provide the best fit for the experimental data...

Hypersensitive and highly selective nanomaterials for the measurement of heavy metal ions (HMIs) hold a key to electro-analysis. Various works improved the results of analysis but without scientific understanding. Herein, Fe/Mg/Ni-layered double hydroxide (LDH) has been successfully prepared and its electrochemical behavior for Pb(II) detection is also studied using square wave anodic stripping voltammetry (SWASV). The well performance of electrochemistry suggest that the modification with Fe/Mg/Ni-LDH significantly promotes the selectivity and sensitivity toward Pb(II)...

Mesoporous basic Mg-Al mixed metal oxides (MMOs) with a high surface area and large pore size were prepared through the assembly of monodispersed layered double hydroxide nanoparticles (LDHNPs) with block copolymer templates. The particle sizes of the LDHNPs were controlled mainly by varying the concentration of tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane (THAM), which was used as a surface stabilizing agent for the LDHNPs. LDHNPs and micelles of a block copolymer (Pluronic F127) were assembled to form a composite. The composites were calcined to transform them into mesoporous MMOs and remove the templates...

Poor bone formation remains a key risk factor associated with acellular scaffolds that occurs in some bone defects, particularly in patients with metabolic bone disorders and local osteoporosis. We herein fabricated for the first time layered double hydroxide-chitosan porous scaffolds loaded with PFTα (LDH-CS-PFTα scaffolds) as therapeutic bone scaffolds for the controlled release of PFTα to enhance stem cell osteogenic differentiation and bone regeneration. The LDH-CS scaffolds had three-dimensional interconnected macropores, and plate-like LDH nanoparticles were uniformly dispersed within or on the CS films...

A hierarchical NiO/NiMn-LDH nanosheet array on Ni foam was prepared via a facile two-step approach and exhibited a high specific capacitance (937 F g(-1) at 0.5 A g(-1)) and good cycling stability (91% retention after 1000 cycles at 5 A g(-1)). The improved electrochemical performance is benefited from the synergistic properties of hierarchical NiO/LDH nanosheet composites on a conductive substrate.

Optically responsive, luminescent Ni/Co/Ti layered double hydroxide (LDH), synthesized by a single step hydrothermal route, exhibits highly efficient photodegradation of cationic and anionic dyes, Rhodamine B (∼99.8%) and Acid Red G (∼99.6%) respectively, better than that of commercial catalysts like NiO, CoO and TiO2. The LDH has been characterized by using XRD, XPS, PL, TRES, EIS, TEM, SEM-EDX, AFM, UV-visible DRS, N2-sorption desorption, ξ-potential, FT-IR and TG techniques. The characterized results indicate that the LDH possesses hexagonal morphology, a high surface area, a narrow band gap, defect states and oxygen vacancies within its layered framework...

Developing porous biodegradable scaffolds through simple methods is one of the main approaches of bone tissue engineering (BTE). In this work, a novel BTE composite containing layered double hydroxides (LDH), hydroxyapatite (HA) and gelatin (GEL) was fabricated using co-precipitation and solvent-casting methods. Physiochemical characterizations showed that the chemical composition and microstructure of the scaffolds were similar to the natural spongy bone. Interconnected macropores ranging over 100 to 600μm were observed for both scaffolds while the porosity of 90±0...

Layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanohybrid intercalated biomolecules, including oligonecluotides, genes and peptides/proteins, have attracted particular attention since they exhibit improved safety and effectiveness as successful delivery biosystems. The current study specifically investigated the adsorption of nisin peptide and precisely the control of the release of the payload. Adsorption occurred from peptide solution in contact with zinc-aluminum LDH at room temperature, looking out over the influence of the Zn(2+)/Al(3+) ratio, the anion exchange capacity, the nature of the intercalated anion, the host matrix, and the host morphology...

Selenate and selenite are considered emerging contaminants and pose a risk to living organisms. Since selenium anion species are at low concentration in aquatic environments, materials for its retention are required to enable monitoring. Herein, hydrotalcite was calcined and characterised to investigate sorption and desorption of selenite and selenate in competition with nitrate, sulfate and phosphate. Sorption experiments were carried out in batch system and desorption by sequential dilution. Selenite and selenate concentration remaining after N desorption steps was determined by mass balance...

A series of three-dimensional (3D) porous nanocomposites, comprised of partially reduced graphene oxide (pRGO) and CO3(2-) containing Mg-Al layered double hydroxide, were synthesized in two steps. In the first step, graphene oxide (GO) was fabricated by a modified Hummers' method, and, subsequently, in the second step layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanosheets were homogeneously grown on the surface of the GO sheets by an in situ crystallization approach, involving a facile coprecipitation technique. The alkaline medium used for the in situ growth of LDH on the GO surface resulted in the partial reduction of GO to pRGO, which was confirmed by XRD...

In this work, MnSO4 was added into iron electrocoagulation (EC) system to enhance the removal efficiency of pentavalent antimony (Sb(V)) from wastewater. 99% of Sb(V) was removed after 10min in the presence of 0.5mM MnSO4, which was higher than that of without the addition of MnSO4 (72%). In addition, Mn(2+) can be removed simultaneously and did not cause secondary pollution. The influencing factors such as MnSO4 concentration, initial pH and current density were investigated. It was found that high concentration of MnSO4, acid or neutral pH conditions and current density of 5-10mAcm(-2) benefited the removal of Sb(V)...

Direct adoption of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as electrode materials shows impoverished electrochemical performance owing to low electrical conductivity and poor chemical stability. In this study, we demonstrate self-templated pseudomorphic transformation of MOF into surface chemistry rich hollow framework that delivers highly reactive, durable, and universal electrochemically active energy conversion and storage functionalities. In situ pseudomorphic transformation of MOF-derived hollow rhombic dodecahedron template and sulfurization of nickel cobalt layered double hydroxides (NiCo-LDHs) lead to the construction of interlayered metal sulfides (NiCo-LDH/Co9 S8 ) system...

In this work, nitrogen-doped carbon modified MgO-MgFe2O4 (CN-MgFeO) magnetic composites were synthesized by a facile thermal decomposition of Mg-Fe layered double hydroxide (MgFe-LDH) and cyanamide mixture precursors. A series of comprehensive characterization studies including powder X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared of CO2 adsorption, CO2-temperature programmed desorption, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy indicated that the introduction of cyanamide could finely tune the surface basicity of the resulting CN-MgFeO composites, especially surface strong Lewis basicity...

Tuning and optimizing the efficiency of light energy transfer play an important role in meeting modern challenges of minimizing energy loss and developing high-performance optoelectronic materials. However, attempts to fabricate systems giving highly efficient energy transfer between luminescent donor and acceptor have achieved limited success to date. Herein, we present a strategy towards phosphorescence energy transfer at a 2D orderly crystalline interface. We first show that new ultrathin nanosheet materials giving long-afterglow luminescence can be obtained by assembling aromatic guests into a layered double hydroxide host...

Effective prevention of the water, oxygen, and chloride ions held in the hydrotalcite interlayer from diffusing through the layered double hydroxides ( LDH ) layer is crucial importance for its further practical application in the corrosion protection. In this study, a hybrid reduced graphene oxide ( RGO ) nanosheet /Zn2+/Al3+ layered double hydroxides ( RGO/ZnAl-LDH ) composite film with an excellent corrosion protection property on the 6N01 aluminum alloy surface was synthesized by a newly and facile hydrothermal continuous flow method,which can enable direct growth on the substrate...

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 a thickness of nanosheets of 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...
