Abstract: The use of carbon-based nano-structures (CNSs) to reinforce cement-based binders leads to an improvement in the mechanical characteristics of these nano-composites [1, 2, 3, 4]. To achieve even better mechanical properties of the composite the dispersion of the CNSs and the linkage between the CNSs and the concrete matrix has to be optimized. On the other hand detailed information about the influence of the CNSs on the hydration of the binder is necessary.
With respect to the complexity of this task a cooperation between the institute of materials engineering and the institute for building and materials chemistry has been initiated at the University of Siegen.
Due to the cooperation and exchange of information between the institute of materials engineering and the institute for building chemistry a synthesis of CNSs that fits best for the incorporation into the inorganic binders can be developed.
