Magnetic-field-assisted deposition of self-assembling crystallite layers of Co2+-containing layered double hydroxides


Precipitation of nanocrystallites of cobalt-aluminium layered double hydroxides in a magnetic field has been studied. In a magnetic field perpendicular to the substrate, dense and homogeneous films have been obtained. Magnetic anisotropy of the crystallites is explained by deviation from the statistical cation distribution in favour of honeycomb-like coordination of cobalt.
