The Mg-Al layered double hydroxides (Mg-Al LDH) film was fabricated on anodized magnesium alloy AZ31 at different reaction temperature by in-situ hydrothermal treatment method. The reaction solution contained only one kind of trivalent cation Al 3+ , and the divalent cation Mg 2+ is provided by the anodic oxide films. The structure, composition and morphology of the Mg-Al LDH films were investigated via XRD, FI-IR and SEM, respectively. The corrosion resistance of films was studied using

The results of XRD and FT-IR indicate that the crystallinity of films was improved with the increase of reaction temperature. The results of potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectrum show that the corrosion resistance was improved with the increase of reaction temperature. The influence mechanism of reaction temperature on the controlled growth of Mg-Al LDH films was investigated subsequently.
