Novel Synthetic Approaches to Ion-Exchangeable Metal Hydroxides (pp.1-38) $100.00
Authors:  (Gareth Williams, School of Human Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences, London Metropolitan University, London, United Kingdom)
In recent years, there have been significant advances in the synthesis of hydroxides. This has led both to increased control over the composition and morphology of known hydroxides, and the development of new materials. Novel coprecipitation and hydrothermal approaches have permitted layered double hydroxides (LDHs) to be synthesised with very narrow and precisely controlled particle sizes [1, 2], and have led to the synthesis of a new family of LDHs with the unprecedented stoichiometry [MAl4(OH)12](NO3)2yH2O (M = Co, Ni, Cu, Zn) [3]. The use of mixed aqueous/surfactant phases during synthesis has allowed the nanosizing of LDH particles, [4, 5] and the production of new particle morphologies [6, 7]. Pioneering work by a number of researchers has led to the production of LDH thin films, with numerous potential applications [8, 9]. Beyond this, a range of inventive synthetic approaches have led to the discovery of myriad new hydroxide phases, including a wealth of f-block hydroxides such as the Ln2(OH)5X1.5H2O (X = Cl, Br; Ln ; Y = Dy, Er, Yb) family of materials [10, 11]. Perhaps the culmination of this work is the recently reported synthesis of the first hydroxide framework with anion exchange properties [12]. This chapter will discuss recent developments in hydroxide synthesis, focusing on the use of novel synthetic techniques to control product composition and morphology, highlighting the most interesting and promising new materials discovered, and enumerating potential applications arising from these scientific advances.
