Raman spectroscopy of hydrotalcites with phosphate in the interlayer- implications for the removal of phosphate from water
Frost, Ray L., Musumeci, Anthony W., Kloprogge, J. Theo, Adebajo, Moses O., & Martens, Wayde N. (2006) Raman spectroscopy of hydrotalcites with phosphate in the interlayer- implications for the removal of phosphate from water. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 37(7), pp. 733-741.
Hydrotalcites with phosphate in the interlayer were prepared at different pH. At pH >11.0 (PO4)3- was the intercalated ionic species whereas at pH < 11.0 a mixture of (PO4)3- and (HPO4)2- ions was intercalated. Powder X-ray diffraction shows the hydrotalcite formed at pH 9.5 is poorly diffracting with a d-spacing of 11.9; whereas the d(003) spacing for the phosphate interlayered hydrotalcite formed at pH 11.9 and 12.5 were 8.0 and 7.9 Å. The addition of a thermally activated ZnAl-HT to a phosphate solution resulted in the uptake of the phosphate and the reformation of the hydrotalcite. Raman spectroscopy of the phosphate interlayered hydrotalcites shows the interlayered anion is pH dependent and only above pH 11.9 is the orthophosphate anion intercalated. At lower pH the monohydrogen phosphate anion is intercalated.
Raman spectroscopy shows that upon addition of the thermally activated hydrotalcite to an aqueous phosphate solution results in the uptake of phosphate anion from the solution.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
