Abstract: A Zn,Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) with [Cp*MoO3]– (Cp* = η5‐C5Me5) anions in the interlayer has been prepared by a direct coprecipitation method. The intercalated LDH and the mixed metal oxide (MMO) obtained after its calcination were characterized by elemental and thermogravimetric analyses, powder X‐ray diffraction (PXRD), FT‐IR and FT‐Raman spectroscopy, 13C and 27Al MAS NMR, and scanning electron microscopy. The observed basal spacing of 17.1 Å for the LDH Zn,Al‐Cp*MoO3 (corresponding to a gallery height of 12.3 Å) suggests that the guest anions self‐assemble into dimers via offset face‐to‐face Cp*···Cp* interactions, which facilitates hydrogen‐bonding interactions between the oxido ligands of the complexes and the layer hydroxyl groups, while positioning the hydrophobic aromatic rings towards the center of the galleries. Calcination of Zn,Al‐Cp*MoO3 at 550 °C under air gave an MMO comprising well‐dispersed ZnO, α‐ZnMoO4 and ZnAl2O4 (spinel) oxides in a molar of ca. 1.4:1.6:1. The MMO exhibited catalytic activity for the epoxidation of cis‐cyclooctene with tert‐butylhydroperoxide (TBHP) as terminal oxidant, with quantitative yield of the epoxide being achieved within 24 h at 85 °C.
