Carbonate Layered Double Hydroxides (LDHs) with different cationic composition and M2+/M3+ molar ratio were tested, both untreated and calcined, for water defluoridation. The defluoridation capacity of calcined LDHs, produced by intercalation during the reconstruction of lamellar structure, is more effective than the anion exchange of untreated LDHs. Among the calcined LDHs tested, that with 3Mg/(0.5Al+0.5Fe) molar ratio yields a maximum fluoride sorption capacity up to 92.3 mg/g, in spite of the high pH value (up to 12) of the experiments. After four cycles of regeneration by calcination and subsequent water defluoridation, this LDH composition maintains more than 80% of its fluoride removal capacity.
