Hydrotalcite-like compounds are not common things in today’s world. Their potential in application as catalyst, adsorbents, anion exchangers and also nucleophilic halide exchanger had been discovered few years back. In this study, hydrotalcite-like compound will be synthesized and characterized for their potential as hydrogen storage purpose. Based on previous research, hydrotalcite-like compound has high potential to overcome hurdles of several other existing hydrogen storage materials. The synthesis process of hydrotalcite-like compound will be using Magnesiumbased materials. Sol-gel related coprecipitation (SGRCP) technique implemented in this study with sodium carbonate as the precipitating agent. SGRCP is a new developed method by the combination of inorganic precursor with organic solvent. There are a few methods of analysis in order to discover the characterization of the hydrotalcite-like compounds, which are Powder X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), surface area analyzer (BET) and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) analysis. This study will be focusing on the effect of thermal treatment using different calcinations process of mixed oxides compound and also different hydrotalcite-like compound ratio. Compilation from this study will be able to determine the optimum condition for hydrotalcite compound as the new promising hydrogen storage material.
