Abstract

A facile, rapid, and noninvasive method for reconstructing ZnAl layered double hydroxide (LDH) is reported. ZnAl LDH series were synthesized at different Zn2+ /Al3+ atomic ratio (1.5-4) via an alkali-free method and reconstructed under hydrothermal route (HTM) for the first time. Fresh Zn/Al LDHs were activated at 300°C and reconstructed under hydrothermal process. A better insight and correlation study between the physiochemical properties of reconstructed ZnAl LDH in terms of their crystallinity, surface area and basicity also will be gained here. BET surface area of rehydrated samples increased up to 355 m2 /g (Zn:Al ratio 3:1). CO2-TPD probed high number of basic sites density (0.1 mmol/g).
