Hierarchical hollow Mg-Al layered double hydroxide microspheres (HHMs) are successfully prepared by hydrothermal treatment in the presence of carbon dots (CDs). Morphology and structure of the as-prepared samples are characterized using XRD, SEM, FT-IR, and TEM techniques. The growth process of HHMs has been investigated in detail, and Ostwald ripening mechanism is suggested for the hierarchical growth of HHMs. Adsorption isotherms and adsorption kinetics of HHMs for congo red (CR) are investigated. Langmuir and Temkin model are more fitted to the experimental data of CR isotherm adsorption. Adsorption kinetic data obeys the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. Moreover, thermodynamic parameters (ΔGo, ΔHo and ΔSo) show that the CR adsorption onto HHMs is an endothermic and spontaneous process. The as-prepared HHMs could be a potential adsorbent for wastewater treatment containing anion dyes.
