Measurement of fast reactions. Chromium in cement - measuring the kinetics of lamellar calcium alumnate chromate hydrates

This application note reports work carried out at the Martin-Luther-University Halle in Germany, which has shown that by using a PANalytical XRD diffractometer fitted with the X’Celerator detector, it is possible to measure the kinetics of the changes in interlayer dimensions in lamellar calcium aluminate chromate hydrate at room temperature in air.

X-ray diffraction (XRD) offers researchers in building materials and those working in environmental monitoring a powerful technique to study phase changes.
