Abstract: Layered zinc benzoate hydroxide compound with a basal spacing of 1.44 nm was prepared by hydrothermal reaction in a temperature range of 110~180 ℃. XRD, TG-DTA, SEM, TEM, and elementary analysis were used to characterize the structure, particle morphology, characteristic, and chemical composition of the synthesized layered compounds. Meanwhile, the effect of the synthetic conditions on the obtained compound was also investigated. The results indicated that when the molar ratio of C6H5COOH/Zn was 0.9~1.0, the temperature 130~150 ℃ and the reaction time 12 h, the prepared compound was of fibrous particle morphology, and its chemical formula can be written as Zn(OH)1.12•(C6H5COO)0.88.

Key words: Layered compound, Zinc benzoate hydroxide, Hydrothermal Synthesis
