Intercalation of Collagen and Soybean Peptides into Zn–Al Layered Double Hydroxide
Abstract:In order to develop a new type biocompatible organic/inorganic nanohybrid material, an intercalation of collagen peptides (CP) and soybean peptide (SP) into Zn–Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) by the coprecipitation reaction has been investigated. The peptide/LDH has been characterized by chemical analysis, powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, thermal gravimetric analysis (TG) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). According to the XRD patterns and Raman spectra, the solid products were found to contain peptide and to show broad diffraction peaks with LDH structures. The CP/LDH and SP/LDH possess the expanding LDH structure, d00l = 2–3 nm, confirming that both peptides were intercalated into the LDH interlayer space with low organized stacking arrangement.
