In this contribution the rehydration process of a dehydrated CaFe-LDH is described with the combination of thermogravimetric (TG), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and dielectric relaxation spectroscopic (DRS) measurements. Dehydration was followed by TG and the major steps were identified. For studying the rehydration procedure the dehydrated samples were treated in the 6-97% relative humidity range at several preset vapour contents at 298 K. For equilibration 72 h were allowed. Then, the XRD diffractograms and the DRS spectra were registered and the thermal behaviour of the partially rehydrated samples was also studied. From these measurements the various forms of water molecules interacting with the LDH were deduced and their relaxation behaviour in the rehydration procedure is described.
