Thirteen peer-reviewed papers provide the latest research on geopolymer binders and their performance. Topics cover the production, characterization, and use of these binders, including durability issues.
With the increasing need for sustainable binders, binder systems such as s geopolymers and related alkali-activated aluminosilicates, are being increasingly and actively studied. They are already being marketed as specialty products, and are being explored for use in structural concrete.
