In this study, we report a simple and efficient (bath ultrasonication) method for the preparation of multi-functional layered hybrid nanostructures using graphene oxide (GO) and modified Mg-Al layered double hydroxides (LDH) [LDH@GO]. The functional composition, crystalline nature, layered surface morphology and thermal behavior of the hybrid nanostructures of LDH@GO were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, Field-emission scanning electron microscopy, Transmission electron microscopy, elemental analysis and thermo gravimetric analysis. The results confirmed the formation of layered hybrid nanostructures of LDH@GO showing a significant increment in the spacing between GO sheets due to the incorporation of LDH. Also hybrid nanostructures of LDH@GO have better thermal stability as compared to pristine GO.
