Nomenclature of the hydrotalcite supergroup: natural layered double hydroxides

Mills, S J; Christy, Andrew; Genin , J. M. R.; Kameda, T.; Colombo, Fernando


Layered double hydroxide (LDH) compounds are characterized by structures in which layers with a brucite-like structure carry a net positive charge, usually due to the partial substitution of trivalent octahedrally coordinated cations for divalent cations, giving a general layer formula [( M 2+1-x M 3+x )(OH)2] x+. This positive charge is balanced by anions which are intercalated between the layers. Intercalated molecular water typically provides hydrogen bonding between the brucite layers. In...[Show more]
