Paper Title:
Geopolymer Microstructure and Hydration Mechanism of Alkali-Activated Fly Ash-Based Geopolymer
  Abstract

The microstructure and hydration mechanism of alkali-activated fly ash-based geopolymer were studied by means of scanning electron microscope (SEM) coupled with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDXA) and field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM). The FESEM photomicrographs indicted that the fly ash-based geopolymer showed three dimensional frameworks with an average particle size of 50 nm. EDXA results demonstrated that the Na-PSS type geopolymer was produced via the disintegration of Si-O-Al and Si-O-Si chemical bonds and the polycondensation reaction between [SiO4]4-and [AlO4]5- tetrahedrons in spherical fly ash particles under alkaline condition.
