Geopolymer Chemistry and Applications | Manmade Materials | MaterialsJoseph Davidovits The discovery of a new class of inorganic materials, geopolymer resins, binders, cements and concretes, resulted in wide scientific interest and kaleidoscopic development of applications. From the first industrial research efforts in at the Cordi-Gopolymre private research laboratory, SaintQuentin, France, until the end of , hundreds of papers and patents were pu-blished dealing with geopolymer science and technology. Although review articles and conference proceedings cover various aspects of the science and application of geopolymers, a researcher or engineer is still at a loss to readily obtain specific information about geopolymers and their use. It is this void that we hope to fill with this book. There are two main purposes in preparing this book: it is an introduction to the subject of geopolymers for the newcomer to the field, for students, and a reference for additional information. Background details on structure, properties, characterization, synthesis, chemistry applications are included.
The Journal of Ceramic Science and Technology publishes original scientific articles on all topics of ceramic science and technology from all ceramic branches. The papers may have either theoretical or experimental background. A high quality of publications will be guaranteed by a thorough double blind peer review process. Credit card. Wire transfer.

Introduction to geopolymers. Part 2 Manufacture and properties of geopolymers: Accelerated ageing of geopolymers; Chemical durability of geopolymers; Life-cycle analysis of geopolymers; Engineering properties of geopolymer concrete; Producing fire and heat-resistant geopolymers; Utilisation of mining wastes to produce geopolymer binders; Utilisation of non-thermally activated clays in the production of geopolymers; Thermal properties of geopolymers; Utilisation of low-calcium slags to improve the strength and durability of geopolymers. Part 3 Applications of geopolymers: Commercialisation of geopolymers for construction: Opportunities and obstacles; Geopolymers for nuclear waste immobilization; Immobilization of toxic waste in geopolymers. Today the primary application of geopolymer technology is in the development of reduced-CO2 construction materials as an alternative to Portland-based cements. Geopolymers: structure, processing, properties and industrial applications reviews the latest research on and applications of these highly important materials.
