Effect of curing profile on kaolin-based geopolymers
(Elsevier B.V., 2011)
Depending on the processing conditions, geopolymers can exhibit a wide variety of properties and characteristics. Curing profile serves as a crucial parameter in synthesis of geopolymers. In this paper, the influence of ...
Investigating the possibility of utilization of kaolin and the potential of metakaolin to produce green cement for construction purposes-A review
(INSInet Publication, 2011-09)
Geopolymers are inorganic alkali aluminosilicate gels, formed from reaction of mineral clays or aluminosilicate-bearing industrial wastes, and treated with alkali silicate solution at 40-80°C. Geopolymers have been studied ...
Potential application of kaolin without calcine as greener concrete: A review
(INSInet Publications, 2011-07)
Kaolin is a white raw material that has an essential constituent which makes it ideal for industrial applications such as green concrete. Based on a historical review, it appears that green polymeric composites created by ...
Chemical reactions in the geopolymerisation process using fly ash-based geopolymer: A review
(American-Eurasian Network for Scientific Information (AENSI Publisher), 2011-07)
The development of our world, demanding the power supply which is produced by combustion of coal. Unfortunately, the million of tons of fly ash and related-products have been generated. To overcome these problems, fly ash ...
The relationship of NaOH molarity, Na2SiO3/NaOH ratio, fly ash/alkaline activator ratio, and curing temperature to the strength of fly ash-based geopolymer
(Trans Tech Publications, 2011)
Geopolymer, produced by the reaction of fly ash with an alkaline activator (mixture of Na2SiO3 and NaOH solutions), is an alternative to the use of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) in the construction industry. However, there ...
The effect of curing temperature on physical and chemical properties of geopolymers
(Elsevier BV, 2011)
Fly ash-based geopolymers required heat to increase the geopolymerization process in order to obtain higher compressive strength. As such, geopolymer samples were prepared using different curing temperatures (room temperature, ...
