• Aluminum Hydroxide Gel Characterization within a Calcium Aluminate Cement Paste by Combined Pair Distribution Function and Rietveld Analyses 

      Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Ichikawa, Rodrigo U.; Londono-Zuluaga, Diana; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; [et al.] (Elsevier, 2017-06)
      There are many commercially important multiphase materials which contain amorphous phases, such as cement pastes, porcelains, glass-ceramics or pharmaceutical compounds. However, the analysis of amorphous phase(s) within ...
    • Local structure and Ca/Si ratio in C-S-H gels from hydration of blends of tricalcium silicate and silica fume 

      Dapiaggi, Monica; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; [et al.] (Elsevier, 2021-03)
      At the microscale, C-S-H gels from alite, or neat Portland cements, has a Ca/Si ratio close to 1.80. At the nanoscale, C-S-H is described by a defective tobermorite structure which allows a maximum Ca/Si ratio close to ...
    • Rietveld quantitative phase analysis of Yeelimite-containing cements 

      Álvarez-Pinazo, Gema; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; García-Maté, Marta; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Losilla, Enrique R.; [et al.] (Elsevier, 2012-03-26)
      Yeelimite-containing cements are attracting attention for their tailored properties. Calcium sulfoaluminate, CSA, cements have high contents of Yeelimite and they are used for special applications. Belite calcium sulfoaluminate, ...
