Optimization of MgAl-LDH synthetic parameters has found to be a remarkable influence on the LDH corrosion resistance properties. We synthesized a range of LDH structures with the variation of reaction temperatures, crystallization times in an effort to understand the structural behavior of MgAl-LDH and corresponding anti-corrosion properties. The findings demonstrated that extended synthetic conditions favors more compact, regular and uniform flower like structure which act as strong barrier against corrosion media while contract basal spacing permit to strongly hold chloride ions (ion-exchange with the LDH-NO3) and did not allow them to contact with the substrate, compared to traditional platelet structure.
