A study was conducted to demonstrate drug delivery using nanosized layered double hydroxide (LDH), which was an anionic clay. Investigated revealed that layered double hydroxides represented one of the most promising materials in the areas such as nanomedicine, adsorbents, catalysis and catalyst supports , electrode modifier, and magnetic precursors, processing of selective chemical nanoreactors, and separation and membrane technology. Layered nickel hydroxide was used as an electrode for alkaline secondary cells in electrochemistry. The layered structure, wide chemical compositions, variable layer charge density, ion-exchange properties, reactive interlayer space, swelling in water, and rheological and colloidal properties made LDH look and behave like clay.
