Summary : A geopolymer is a solid aluminosilicate material usually formed by alkali hydroxide or alkali silicate activation of a solid precursor such as coal fly ash, calcined clay and/or metallurgical slag. 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. Part one discusses the synthesis and characterisation of geopolymers with chapters on topics such as fly ash chemistry and inorganic polymer cements, geopolymer precursor design, nanostructure/microstructure of metakaolin and fly ash geopolymers, and geopolymer synthesis kinetics. Part two reviews the manufacture and properties of geopolymers including accelerated ageing of geopolymers, chemical durability, engineering properties of geopolymer concrete, producing fire and heat-resistant geopolymers, utilisation of mining wastes and thermal properties of geopolymers. Part three covers applications of geopolymers with coverage of topics such as commercialisation of geopolymers for construction, as well as applications in waste management. With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, Geopolymers: structure, processing, properties and industrial applications is a standard reference for scientists and engineers in industry and the academic sector, including practitioners in the cement and concrete industry as well as those involved in waste reduction and disposal. Discusses the synthesis and characterisation of geopolymers with chapters covering fly ash chemistry and inorganic polymer cements Assesses the application and commercialisation of geopolymers with particular focus on applications in waste management Reviews the latest research on and applications of these highly important materials

Summary : Geopolymers are a new class of binder materials and are generally classified as pure inorganic geopolymers and organic containing geopolymers. Geopolymers are multi-functional materials with applications in a large variety of scientific and industrial disciplines. Significant advancements have been made in the recent years regarding tuning of structures to meet the required set of properties so as to achieve specific applications. In this respect, the book aims to summarize synthesis, properties and applications of various advanced geopolymer systems. The wealth of information about synthesis and commercialization of many commercially relevant geopolymers makes the book a valuable asset for a diverse audience ranging from materials, chemical and process engineers as well as practicing scientists in academia and industry to postgraduate university students in various engineering disciplines.

Summary : This book provides an updated state-of-the-art review on new developments in alkali-activation. The main binder of concrete, Portland cement, represents almost 80% of the total CO2 emissions of concrete which are about 6 to 7% of the Planet’s total CO2 emissions. This is particularly serious in the current context of climate change and it could get even worse because the demand for Portland cement is expected to increase by almost 200% by 2050 from 2010 levels, reaching 6000 million tons/year. Alkali-activated binders represent an alternative to Portland cement having higher durability and a lower CO2 footprint. Reviews the chemistry, mix design, manufacture and properties of alkali-activated cement-based concrete binders Considers performance in adverse environmental conditions. Offers equal emphasis on the science behind the technology and its use in civil engineering.

Summary : Geopolymers are applied to material classes that are chemically transformed from low crystallinity aluminusilicates to three-dimensional inorganic polymers (tectosilicates). The resulting material has properties similar to natural minerals, so it is called artificial rock. However, these materials exhibit a chemical composition and mineralogical structure similar to feldspar, feldspathoidal, and zeolites consisting of a polymeric Si–O– Al framework, with a microcrystalline or an amorphous structure. Although geopolymers have attractive engineering and environmental characteristics, there are some challenges in commercializing these materials. In this book, these challenges will be addressed along with introducing the functional geopolymers as an effective approach to commercializing these materials and making them economically feasible.

Summary : Abstract: Recent progress in research on the key thermal expansion properties of amorphous, silica-based, alkali-activated geopolymers and their potential applications are here reviewed and addressed. Besides having great potential as thermal insulators and fire resistant materials since they are not combustible, geopolymers can be applied as interior aircraft components to improve fire resistance, and as coatings for insulator applications and many other potential applications. The raw materials used to make geopolymers are alumino silicates such as fly ash, granulated blast furnace slag, and calcined kaolinite clays. The raw materials can be obtained from biomass waste such as rice husk ash, palm oil ash, and rice husk bark ash. Different raw materials will exhibit different thermal expansion/shrinkage due to their different chemical compositions. In addition, processing of geopolymer material will result in diverse thermal properties due to the different molarity of the alkaline activated solutions used and method of preparation. Interestingly, it was found that the dilatometer curve is influenced by many factors such as aluminosilicate source, silica to alumina ratio, geopolymer mixing ratio, chemical composition and type of geopolymer—such as composite, coating or hybrid. These characteristics are investigated further in this review paper.
