    • Abstract


      NO$^−_2$ and SCN$^−$ are two common small inorganic anions. The former is a common industrial pollutant. Thelatter is linear and is a good mimic for the toxic CN$^−$ ion. The structures of these two anions are refined within the gallery ofthe [Zn–Al]-layered double hydroxide (LDH). Both LDHs crystallize as mixed anion phases. The nitrite is found to co-existwith the nitrate ion. The nitrite ion is intercalated with its molecular plane inclined to the metal hydroxide layer. In the caseof the SCN$^−$ intercalated LDH, no other anion was detected by ion chromatography, suggesting that the SCN$^−$ deficiencyis compensated by intercalated hydroxyl ions. In this case, the SCN$^−$ ion is found to be intercalated with its molecular axisinclined to the metal hydroxide layer.
