A composite of dodecylsulfate intercalated Mg-Al and Co-Al LDHs in which the layers of the two LDHs are randomly costacked was prepared starting from the monolayer colloidal dispersions of the individual surfactant intercalated LDHs obtained through delamination in 1-butanol. The surfactant ion of the composite could be exchanged for acetate ions. The thermal decomposition and reconstruction behavior of the acetate-intercalated composite was found to be different from those of an LDH in which each layer contains Mg, Co and Al and a physical mixture of Mg-Al and Co-Al LDHs. While the composite shows partial reconstruction to LDH phase even after heating up to $1000 ^oC$ the other samples do not show reconstruction beyond $800 ^oC$.
