Characterization of Cement-Based Materials Modified with Graphene-Oxide

Qian, Ye; Abdallah, Maika Yzabelle; Kawashima, Shiho

For applications in cement and concrete, studies on carbon-based nanomaterials have been almost exclusively on carbon nanotubes, even constituting a large portion of studies on nanomaterials of any type. Although a promising approach, economic and dispersion issues continue to limit industry acceptance. Graphene oxide (GO), derived cost-effectively from graphite, shows good dispersion in water. In this paper, preliminary results showing the beneficial effects of graphene oxide on the hardening and mechanical properties of cement-based materials are presented.
