Ion exchange of the interlayer carbonate anion of Co(II)/Al(III) layered double hydroxide with dodecylsulfate was conducted by the reaction in aqueous media under hydrothermal conditions. While the hexagonal plate particle shape was retained, the thickness of the plate increased. The ratio of the average particle thickness (from 440 to 1380 nm, 3.1 times) before and after the exchange with dodecylsulfate was consistent with the ratio of the basal spacing (from 0.76 to 2.6 nm, 3.4 times) before and after ion exchange. This correlation between the basal spacing and the particle size is the first example to confirm the topochemical reaction of the intercalation.
