Building Materials

The chemistry of construction materials.


Building materials is a collective name for any natural and artifical material which is used in the building industry: natural building materials, additives, cement, concrete, building protective agents, adhesive agents etc.

The Builiding Chemistry is engaged in the materials used for construction. A number of factors play a role in the assessment of chemical building aspects, but in first line the basics of inorganic, organic and analytical chemistry.

The following list includes online available information on building chemicals and the chemistry of the materials.

Cement Hydration

The first seconds in a building’s life: X-ray diffraction studies of cement hydration on the millisecond scale.

Image: Highly dynamic hydration processes that occur during the first seconds of cement hydration were studied by time-resolved synchrotron X-ray diffraction. Polycarboxylate ether additives were found to influence the formation of the initial crystalline hydration products on a molecular level.
