Influence of Material Systems on Synthesized Xonotlite Whiskers
The material systems were taken into account to prepare xonotlite whiskers without any surfactant, special instruments and synthesis conditions. Effect of material systems on the crystal phase and morphology of synthesized xonotlite whiskers was studied by using XRD and SEM techniques. The results indicated that the different material systems had great impact on the crystal phase and morphology of synthesized product. The xonotlite crystal could be formed both in C-S-H and C-S-K-H systems, while the formation of xonotlite whiskers was promoted and the large scale whiskers were prepared at 225 °C for 15 h only in C-S-K-H system. In the C-S-N-H system, the synthesized product was pectolite but xonotlite.
