Superplasticizers in Cement involving synthesis of block and/or copolymers and investigation of plasticizing effects of these polymers in cement.

Superplasticizers are used as dispersants to avoid particle aggregation and improve flow characteristics of cement and also they are unanimously considered to be the most important chemical admixture for concrete. Polycarboxylate ether-based (PCE) superplasticizers were found to improve the rheological and mechanical properties of cement. The aims of the project are to understand the link between the structure and end-performance of the polymers and also to investigate colloidal behavior of cement and design polymer systems to cope with different parameters.
