Abstract

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) consist of layers with two or three positively charged metal ions surrounded by hydroxide ions, water molecules and partially or fully hydrated exchangeable charge-compensating anions between the layers. These materials have many application possibilities. In this work, CaAl-LDH samples were synthesized and used as catalysts. The esterification reactions of acetate and benzoate ions were studied with benzyl bromide under solvent-free conditions over CaAl-LDH samples. The as-prepared as well as the used LDH samples were characterized with X-ray diffractometry, and the reaction products were identified by ATR-IR spectroscopy.
