Nickel(II)–hydroxide–(sodium fluoride tetrasilicic mica) intercalation complexes were prepared by titrating nickel(II) nitrate solutions in the presence of mica with sodium hydroxide. As the degree of interlayering increased, the I(002)⁄I(001) intensity ratio increased and the specific surface areas decreased. The composition of fully developed nickel(II) hydroxide interlayer, to be exact, hydroxonickel(II) complex was [Ni3(OH)5(H2O)]+ per formula unit. Nickel(II) hydroxide within the interlayers of the silicate was reduced at about 500 °C in H2 flow and then 5–10 nm ultra fine nickel particles were distributed over the whole surface of mica. With an increase of reducing temperature, the amount of reduced nickel increased and sintering of nickel particles on the surface of mica proceeded.
