In this study, Hudcová et al. propose a comprehensive mechanistic/modeling approach as a powerful tool for describing the mechanism of zinc and lead ions binding on Mg-Fe layered double hydroxides in aqueous solutions. Such a study is the first of its type and it showed Mg-Fe LDHs performed as universal sorbents usable in metal contaminated waters under variable experimental conditions.
