During the past decade, significant progress has been made in synthesizing various nano-based products for industrial application. Among them, magnetic Fe3O4/layered double hydroxides nanocomposite materials have attracted broader applicability. The uniqueness of these nano hybrid nanocomposites have attracted valuable utility to nanotechnology field due to their magnetic properties and enhanced catalytic performance compared to layered double hydroxides (LDHs). The electrostatic interaction between positively charged LDHs and negatively charged Fe3O4 makes them more stable. Therefore, the present review article summarizes the various synthesis strategies and applications of magnetic Fe3O4/LDHs.
