Currently, Layered Double Hydroxides (LDH) is a hot area of research on inorganic layered materials. The present book, Applications of Layered Double Hydroxides, edited by Dr. Rjib Lochan Goswamee and Dr. Pinky Saikia, is a collection of articles from various researchers from different parts of the world mainly on structure and property relationships of various types of LDH and their related application prospects. How these application prospects can be related to the most pressing problems of humanity like drug delivery, global warming, green catalysis, electrochemical energy storage and generation etc. are clearly discussed in the articles inside. The book provides a thorough up-to-date review of recent literature on applications of LDH available in the global scientific and technical media. For example, the book lucidly describes the behaviour of LDH nanocarriers in biological fluids, their low cytotoxicity and high levels of cellular internalization, and high drug loading capacity. Similarly, the book examines why hybrid nanocomposites of LDH-MOF are considered promising materials due to their diverse functionality, flexible properties and tailored end-use properties. Likewise, application of LDH in secondary batteries and electro-chemical supercapacitors with a thorough up-to-date review is included in the book. Also, basic research articles on structural properties and measurements of a special class of unique LDH Li-Al-LDHs are included. Editors also have written their own articles on their findings on the prospective application of dispersions of LDH nanocomposites on structured catalysts for green-house gas emission. Overall, the book gives a short glimpse of wonderful opportunities that LDH can provide in solving many global socio-economic problems of today.
