Abstract: A possibility to control shrinkage of high performance architectural concrete is established owing to the use of organic shrinkage reducing agents (OSRA) on the basis of alkanediols. Two isomeric alkanediols (namely 2-methyl-2,4-pentanediol and 2,3-dimetyl-2,3-butanediol) have been synthesized; their influence on shrinkage deformations, concrete strength development, concrete pore structure, and durability was investigated.
