Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) are promising compounds in a wide range of fields. However, exchange of CO anions with other anions is necessary, because the CO anions are strongly affixed in the LDH interlayer space. To elucidate the reason for the extremely high stability of CO anions intercalated in LDHs, we investigated in detail the chemical states of CO anions and hydrated water molecules in the LDH interlayer space by synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction, solid-state NMR spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy. We found the rigidity of the network structure formed between the CO anions, hydrated water molecules, and the hydroxyl groups on the metal hydroxide layer surface to be a crucial factor underlying the stability of CO anions in the LDH interlayer space.
