About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to highlight and promote research on new preparation methods of LDH- type materials and their characterization by electronic and spectroscopic techniques (e.g. scanning electron microscopy, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, powder X-ray diffraction) or thermal analysis. Most importantly, this topic will spotlight the application of LDHs as acid-base catalysts in the development of novel reactions or improving existing ones in the field of sustainable process chemistry. The use of operando spectroscopy for mechanistic investigation and process optimization is also welcome.
We invite the submission of Original Research, Review, Mini Review, Perspective articles on themes including, but not limited to:
• Layered Double Hydroxides
• LDHs as acid-base catalysts and support materials
• Synthesis of LDH-type materials
• Characterization of LDH-type materials
• LDH applications in fine chemical synthesis
• Operando spectroscopy.
Keywords: Layered Double Hydroxides, LDH, Catalysts, Fine chemicals, Catalyst support, Sustainable processes.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
