Enhanced catalytic oxidation ability of ternary layered double hydroxides for organic pollutants degradation

Abstract : Co2+ and Cu2+ substituted MgAl layered double hydroxides with an M2+/M3+ atomic ratio of 2.0 were synthesized by a co-precipitation method and fully characterized using various techniques including powder X-ray diffraction, ICP-AES analysis, FT-IR, DR UV-Vis spectroscopy, N-2 adsorption-desorption and transmission electron microscopy. The materials revealed a good crystallinity with no phase impurity and successful substitution of cobalt and copper ions in the framework of binary LDH with the target ratio of metals in the sheet. The adsorption characteristics (kinetic and isotherm) and the catalytic oxidation of organic pollutants, methylene blue (cationic dye) and orange II (anionic) were carried out to investigate a potential use of LDH materials as catalysts. In particular, Co3Cu1Al2 LDH exhibited an excellent catalytic activity towards catalytic dye degradation, especially for orange II with good stability and reusability over several times. Furthermore, this LDH material showed good catalytic performance for several chlorophenol compounds, suggesting its practical application in wastewater treatment. Therefore, layered double hydroxides substituted with Co2+ and Cu2+ could be promising candidates in various applications, such as the abatement of organic pollutants.
