Hydrotalcites based upon gallium as a replacement for aluminium in hydrotalcite over a Mg/Al ratio of 2:1 to 4:1 were synthesised. The d(003) spacing varied from 7.83 A ° for the 2:1 hydrotalcite to 8.15 A ° for the 3:1 gallium containing hydrotalcite. A comparison is made with the Mg Al hydrotalcite in which the d(003) spacing for the Mg/Al hydrotalcite varied from 7.62 A ° for the 2:1Mg hydrotalcite to 7.98 A ° for the 4:1 hydrotalcite. The thermal stability of the gallium containing hydrotalcite was determined using thermogravimetric analysis. Four mass loss steps at 77, 263–280,485 and 828 degrees C with mass losses of 10.23, 21.55, 5.20 and 7.58% are attributed to dehydration, dehydroxylation and decarbonation. The thermal stability of the galliumcontaining hydrotalcite is slightly less than the aluminium hydrotalcite.

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.
