Abstract

The composition and microstructure of different CaCO3-Ca2SiO4-carbon nanotube composites have been studied. Materials have been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), high resolution scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis (TG/DTA), and Fourier-transfor...

Abstract: The composition and microstructure of different CaCO3-Ca2SiO4-carbon nanotube composites have been studied. Materials have been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), high resolution scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis (TG/DTA), and Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The morphology and structure of the inorganic systems are affected by the presence of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) during the hydration processes and the nature of the MWCNT/SDS interface plays a role in the curing stages of the composite enhancing the growth of calcium silicate.
