Ramin Ghiyasi, Zolfaghar Rezvani
In the present paper, successful preparation of ZnAl layered double hydroxides (LDHs) containing bis-tetrazole anions with both typical and interstratified arrangements is reported. The mechanism of the single-anion interstratified arrangement remains a long-standing and overwhelming challenge in the chemistry of LDHs. To address this issue, the arrangement of layers, the positioning of anions in the interlayer space, and the cationic ratio of layers were studied by the application of a series of laboratory methods including X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermal analyses (TGA, DTG, and DTA), elemental analysis (CHN), and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) methods, together with computer simulations performed by using Dmol3, Forcite, and Reflex modules...

A supramolecular nanovehicle, denoted as ICG-DOX/Gd-LDH, was synthesized by the co-intercalation of indocyanine green (ICG) and doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX) into a gallery of Gd(3+)-doped-layered double hydroxide (Gd-LDH) such that to achieve a chemo-photothermal synergistic therapeutic agent. The unique structure of Gd-LDH can not only stabilize the photothermal agent ICG to enhance the photothermal efficiency, but also hamper the recombination between electron and holes, leading to the generation of more reactive oxygen species (ROS) under irradiation in the NIR range...

Transition metal sulfides are a kind of potential candidates for efficient and stable CE materials in DSSCs due to their good electrocatalytic ability and stability towards I3(-) reduction. However, the low conductivity of sulfides is harmful for the electron collection and transfer process, and the absorption/desorption and diffusion process of I(-)/I3(-) should be optimized to achieve high electrocatalytic activity over Pt. Herein, a hierarchical CoFeS2/reduced graphene oxide (CoFeS2/rGO) composite was rationally designed and prepared via the in situ conversion of CoFe layer double hydroxide anchored on rGO...

Searching for a simple and fast strategy to effectively enhance the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) performance of non-noble-metal electrocatalysts in alkaline media remains a significant challenge. Herein, we demonstrate that the OER activity of NiFe-LDH nanoarray on carbon cloth (NiFe-LDH/CC) in alkaline media is greatly boosted by amorphous NiFe-Borate (NiFe-Bi) layer formation on NiFe-layered double hydroxide (NiFe-LDH) surface. Such NiFe-LDH@NiFe-Bi/CC catalyst electrode only needs overpotential of 294 mV to drive 50 mA cm-2 in 1...

Owing to the low conductivity of pure water, using an electrolyte is common for achieving efficient water electrolysis. In this paper, we have fundamentally broken through this common sense by using deep-sub-Debye-length nanogap electrochemical cells to achieve efficient electrolysis of pure water (without any added electrolyte) at room temperature. A field-assisted effect resulted from overlapped electrical double layers can greatly enhance water molecules ionization and mass transport, leading to electron-transfer limited reactions...

Membrane interactions are critical for the successful use of inorganic nanoparticles as antimicrobial agents and as carriers of, or co-actives with, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs). In order to contribute to an increased understanding of these, we here investigate effects of particle size (42-208 nm) on layered double hydroxide (LDH) interactions with both bacteria-mimicking and mammalian-mimicking lipid membranes. LDH binding to bacteria-mimicking membranes, extraction of anionic lipids, as well as resulting membrane destabilization, was found to increase with decreasing particle size, also translating into size-dependent synergistic effects with the antimicrobial peptide LL-37...

A novel Cobalt Nickle Iron-layered double hydroxide/carbon nanofibres (CoNiFe-LDH/CNFs-0.5) composite was successfully fabricated through an easy in situ growth approach. The morphology and composition of the obtained materials were systematically investigated. When the two derived materials were used for supercapacitor electrodes, the CoNiFe-LDH/CNFs-0.5 composite displayed high specific surface area (114.2 m(2) g(-1)), specific capacitance (1203 F g(-1) at 1 A g(-1)) and rate capability (77.1% from 1 A g(-1) to 10 A g(-1)), which were considerably higher than those of pure CoNiFe-LDH...

The herbicide glyphosate (GLY) or 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acids (2,4D) was intercalated in the interlayer region of a Zn-Al-layered double hydroxide (LDH) to obtain LDH-GLY or the LDH-2,4D hybrid composite because of its controlled release. Compared to the physically mixed herbicides, the LDH-herbicide hybrid composite displayed slow-release properties in decarbonated distilled water. The release rate of herbicides was found to be dependent on the carbonate and chloride anion concentrations in solution. The time at which 50% of the herbicides were released from the hybrid composite into solution, t 50, ranged from 6...

Hierarchical flower-like Mg2Al-Cl LDH microspheres were synthesized using a reverse surfactant-free microemulsion (SFME) route at a low temperature (∼25°C), and characterized by XRD, TEM, SEM, FT-IR, TG, N2 adsorption/desorption, and elemental analyses. The SFME used consists of n-hexane, isopropanol, and water. The so-obtained flower-like microspheres are constructed with LDH nanosheets with ∼10nm thickness. After destroyed by calcination, their crystal structure and flower-like morphology can be reconstructed by rehydration...

Monocrystalline, yet porous mosaic platelets of cobalt ferrite, CoFe2O4, can be synthesized from a layered double hydroxide (LDH) precursor by thermal decomposition. Using an equimolar mixture of Fe2+, Co2+ and Fe3+ during co-precipitation, a mixture of LDH, (FeIICoII)2/3FeIII1/3(OH)2(CO3)1/6  m H2O, and the target spinel CoFe2O4 can be obtained in the precursor. During calcination, the remaining FeII fraction of the LDH is oxidized to FeIII leading to an overall Co2+:Fe3+ ratio of 1:2 as required for spinel crystallization...

In this study, a new strategy for highly selective and extremely efficient removal of toxic oxyanions (Cr(VI), Se(VI), and As(V)) from aqueous solutions using zwitterionic glycine intercalated layered double hydroxide (Gly-LDH) was reported. Hence, to investigate the effect of zwitterionic glycine on the adsorption capacity, selectivity factor and adsorption mechanism of LDHs, two NiAl LDHs intercalated with different inter-layer anions, including NO3(-) and glycine, were synthesized. The obtained results show that the adsorption capacity and selectivity factor of oxyanions through ion exchange mechanism in NO3-LDH is lower than Gly-LDH...

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) are important materials in the field of catalyst supports, and their surface hydroxyl functionality makes them interesting candidates for supporting well-defined single-site catalysts. Here, we report that the surface hydroxyl concentration can be controlled by thermal treatment of these materials under vacuum, leading to hydroxyl numbers (αOH) similar to those of dehydroxylated silica, alumina, and magnesium hydroxide. Thermal treatment of [Mg0.74Al0.26(OH)2](SO4)0.1(CO3)0...

Highly active electrocatalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction are in most cases powder nanomaterials which undergo substantial changes upon applying the high potentials required for high current density oxygen evolution. Due to the vigorous gas evolution the durability under OER conditions is disappointingly low for most powder electrocatalysts due to missing strategies to securely fix powder catalysts to electrode surfaces. Thus, reliable studies of catalysts during or after OER are often impaired. We propose composites of precursors of polybenzoxazines and organophilic modified NiFe layered double hydroxides (LDHs) to form a stable and highly conducting catalyst layer, which allows the study of the catalyst before and after electrocatalysis...

Improving the flame retardancy of wood is an imperative yet highly challenging step in the application of wood in densely populated spaces. In this study, Mg-Al-layered double-hydroxide (LDH) coating was successfully fabricated on a wood substrate to confer flame-retardant and smoke-suppression properties. The chemical compositions and bonding states characterized by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirmed the coating constituents of Mg-Al LDH. The coating evenly covered the sample wood surfaces and provided both mechanical enhancement and flame-retardancy effects...

Herein, we utilized nanoscale zero-valent iron loaded on layered double hydroxide (NZVI/LDH) to immobilize Se(VI) and evaluated the enhancement role of LDH in the NZVI reaction system. The structural characterization indicated that LDH could stabilize and disperse NZVI as well as prevent NZVI from oxidation, thereby increasing iron reactivity. Batch experiments displayed that, compared with those by NZVI, both extent and rate of Se(VI) immobilized by NZVI/LDH significantly increased, owing to the prominent synergistic effect ascribing from adsorption and reduction...

Continuous hydrothermal synthesis (CHS) of nanoparticles is most commonly associated with the production of metal oxides and ceramics. However, recent work has demonstrated that layered double hydroxides (LDH) can also be synthesised via this method. This research investigates how altering temperature, pressure and precursor base concentration affects growth and nucleation rates which impact on LDH characteristics. Experiments examined the separate effects of increased temperature, pressure and NaOH concentration on crystal domain length (CDL) and surface area...
