Synthesis and characterization of inorganic polymers for structural applications

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project is aimed at synthesizing novel binders based on inorganic polymers (geopolymers), which have emerged as promising materials with the potential to form environmentally sustainable construction and building products. They are reported to exhibit properties such as high compressive strength, rapid controllable setting and hardening, fire resistance. Geopolymers will be synthesized from low quality caolins containing sulphates, which hinder their use in industrial processes. The role of these secondary minerals in synthetic process will be investigated. Experimental planning and data analysis will be tackled by a statistical approach based on the Design of Experiment method. A multi-analytical approach, comparing short-range structural information from spectroscopies to results obtained from mineralogical and microstructural-microchemical analyses, deeply integrated with classic petrographic characterization of the conglomerates, will be used.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
