Layered double hydroxides (LDH's), also known as anionic clays, are lamellar inorganic solids. The structure of most of them corresponds to that of mineral hydrotalcite, consisting of brucite-like hydroxide sheets, where partial substitution of trivalent or divalent cations results in a positive sheet charge compensated by reversibly exchangeable anions within interlayer galleries. These layered materials have good intercalation properties capturing inorganic and organic ions and they are promising materials for a large number of practical applications, both for direct preparation and for after thermal treatment.
