Frost, Ray L., Martens, Wayde N., Ding, Zhe, & Kloprogge, J. Theo (2003) DSC and high-resolution TG of synthesized hydrotalcites of Mg and Zn. Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 71(2), pp. 429-438.

A combination of DSC and high resolution DTG coupled to a gas evolution mass spectrometer has been used to study the thermal properties of a series of Mg/Zn hydrotalcites of formulae MgxZn6-xAl2(OH)16(CO3) ·4H2O where x varied from 6 to 0. The effect of increased Zn composition results in the decrease of the endotherms and mass loss steps to lower temperatures. Evolved gas mass spectrometry shows that water is lost in a number of steps. The interlayer carbonate anion is lost simultaneously with hydroxyl units.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
