What is construction chemistry?

  • Chemistry of inorganic and organic binders
    portland, aluminate, magnesia, phosphate cement
    CaSO4-binders: anhydrite, α-, β-hemihydrate
    epoxy resins, polyurethanes, silicones, polysulfides, latex dispersions

  • Functional molecules 
    superplastizisers, fluid loss additives, retarders, accelerators,
    proofing agents, shrinkage reducers, foamers, air-entraining agents

  • Materials properties of construction materials
    Construction materials properties, structure, damaging reactions,
    intelligent surfaces: photocatalysis, spectral sensitive
    coatings, self-cleaning surfaces
