Acid orange 7 (AO7)-pillared Zn/Al layered double hydroxides (Zn/Al-AO7 LDHs) were successfully synthesized using the co-precipitation method. In this experiment, synthetic parameters such as the pH value and the ratios of raw materials were varied to study their influences on the structure of Zn/Al-AO7 LDHs. Sample characterization was carried out using X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermal analysis (TG-DTA), and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The molecular geometries of the Zn/Al-AO7 LDHs model were calculated at the B3PW91/6-31G(d, p) level and the gallery heights were 2.33 nm, which agreed well with the experimental results. Formamide was chosen as a solvent for the layered double hydroxide delamination experiment. XRD patterns showed that all the layers had been delaminated.
