Abstract

The influence of phosphate, in the concentration range 0.7 to 4.5%, on the hydration reaction of tricalcium silicate was examined with a scanning electron microscope and an infra-red spectrometer. Correlation between the morphology and infra-red vibrations, on the one hand, and the free lime content dependence on the phosphate concentration, on the other, is discussed.
