Abstract

In spite of numerous investigations on the various processes of the thermal decomposition and rehydration of layered double hydroxides (LDHs) by a variety sophisticated experimental means, many details are still unexplored and some contradictions are still unresolved. In this work, our efforts were focussed on clarifying the composition, structure and properties of thermally decomposed metaphases originating from CaFe-LDH, heat treated in the 373-973 K temperature range. The structure reconstruction ability of mixed metal oxide phases obtained after heat treatments was also investigated, mainly concentrating on the changes in the microenvironment of Fe(III), in the presence of controlled amount of water vapour (i.e., at different relative humidities). All samples were characterised by X-ray diffractometry, and the iron-containing phases were studied by 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy.
