Organic-inorganic nanohybrids, 3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid/layered double hydroxide (CA/LDH), 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxycinnamic acid/layered double hydroxide (SA/LDH), and 3-amino-5-triflouromethylbenzoic acid/layered double hydroxide (FBA/LDH) have been synthesized by co-precipitation reaction of organic ultraviolet (UV) ray absorbents such as 3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid, 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxycinnamic acid, 3-amino-5-triflouromethylbenzoic and Zn2Al layered double hydroxide (LDH). Detailed structural and absorption properties of the nanohybrids were studied by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), FT-IR and UV-Vis transmittance spectra which revealed that organic UV absorbents have been intercalated into the interlayer spaces of LDH and all nanohybrids showed excellent UV ray absorption. All the nanohybrids showed a lower catalytic activity as compared to the net organic UV ray absorbents by applying air oxidation to castor oil.
