A novel hollow composite of NiCo-layered double hydroxide and zeolitic imidazolate framework-67 (NiCo-LDH@ZIF-67) adsorbent with high adsorption capacity for pollutants, high adsorption selectivity of methyl orange (MO) and great regenerability was synthesized using ZIF-67 as a template. The sample was characterized by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR), N2 adsorption desorption and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The effect of solution pH, the initial MO concentration and the contact time with the mixture solution on the adsorption property of NiCo-LDH@ZIF-67 was studied. The results indicate that its adsorption kinetics for MO can be well simulated by a pseudo-second-order model and its adsorption isotherm for MO follows the Langmuir equation. The optimized adsorption condition is pH=4, contact time of 15 minutes, and adsorbent dosage of 2400 mg/L. Its maximum adsorption capacity for MO can reach as high as 1766 mg/g and is higher than those reported for all similar adsorbents in the literature. In addition, NiCo-LDH@ZIF-67 can selectively adsorb MO from a mixed solution of MO and methylene blue (MB).
