    • Relevant relationship between phase composition and technical properties.
    • High importance of emplacement, hydration and hardening leading to different mineral structures.
    • New cement types focussing on CO2-reduction.

    Aims and Scope

    Aside from water the materials which are used by mankind in highest quantities arecementitious materials and concrete. This book shows how the quality of the technical product depends on mineral phases and their reactions during the hydration and strengthening process. Additives and admixtures infl uence the course of hydration and the properties. Options of reducing the CO2-production in cementitious materials are presented and numerous examples of unhydrous and hydrous phases and their formation conditions are discussed.

    This editorial work consists of four parts including cement composition and hydration, Special cement and binder mineral phases, Cementitious and binder materials, and Measurement and properties. Every part contains different contributions and covers a broad range within the area.

    Part I: Cement composition and hydration
    Diffraction and crystallography applied to anhydrous cements
    Diffraction and crystallography applied to hydrating cements
    Synthesis of highly reactive pure cement phases
    Thermodynamic modelling of cement hydration: Portland cements – blended cements – calcium sulfoaluminate cements

    Part II: Special cement and binder mineral phases
    Role of hydrotalcite-type layered double hydroxides in delayed pozzolanic reactions and their bearing on mortar dating
    Setting control of CAC by substituted acetic acids and crystal structures of their calcium salts
    Crystallography and crystal chemistry of AFm phases related to cement chemistry

    Part III: Cementitious and binder materials
    Chemistry, design and application of hybrid alkali activated binders
    Binding materials based on calcium sulphates
    Magnesia building material (Sorel cement) – from basics to application
    New CO2-reduced cementitious systems
    Composition and properties of ternary binders

    Part IV: Measurement and properties
    Characterization of microstructural properties of Portland cements by analytical scanning electron microscopy
    Correlating XRD data with technological properties
    No cement production without refractories
