    The colloidal ettringite crystals are formed by a through-solution mechanism in the presence of saturated calcium hydroxide. The presence of calcium hydroxide decreases the reaction rate of aluminates, thus it causes the formation of colloidal sized ettringite crystals. Because, the colloidal ettringite crystals have a high specific surface area and they be able to adsorb water

  • The Famous Pozzolana Cement Of Ancient Rome Came From The Mining Of Volcanic Ash

    1002 Words  | 5 Pages

    The renowned Pozzolana cement of ancient Rome came from the mining of Volcanic Ash, which was abundant in aluminosilicate minerals. (Lea, 2015) This specific cement, or indeed any aluminosilicate that react with lime in water to form cement is still referred to as Pozzolana or Pozzolan. In 1756 in Devon, John Smeaton developed a hydraulic lime which would go on to be succeeded by Portland cement (Milana, 2011). Further progress took place throughout the 1800s, but the actual concept of Portland

    atmosphere. In this case the powder grains break, the material is pulverized, and articles crack [3-9]. Several methods such as using pitch, tar, flake, and vein graphite minerals, treating MgO-CaO materials in a CO2atmosphere or addition of different oxide additives, such as V2O5 [11], CuO [12], FeTiO3 [13], La2O3 [14], TiO2[], Ce2O [15], ZrO2 [16], and Fe2O3, have been tested to control the hydration resitance of MgO-CaO refractories. all methods lead the accession of CaO and MgO to the moisture to

    After completion of the transesterification reaction employed at the optimal conditions, the catalyst was collected from the reactant mixture by filtration; the catalyst was washed with hexane several times to remove the adhered oil particles, and then dried at 110°C for 2 hr. The catalyst was reused several times without further treatment to obtain FAME from WCSO. To evaluate catalyst stability, the optimum amount of CaO that was obtained by examining the operating condition was stirred with 38ml

  • The Acidic Environment Around Us

    us is certainly acidic. Even though people often think the air around us is neutral, the atmosphere naturally contains acidic oxides of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur that can harm our environment greatly. These oxides can be produced naturally and industrially. Sulfur dioxide is produced when organic matter decomposes and forms hydrogen sulphide which then oxidises to the oxide: 2H2S (g) + 3O2 (g) 2SO2 (g) + 2H2O. The natural sources of sulfur dioxide are in volcanic gases, bushfires, sulfur rich geothermal

  • Synthesis Of Magnesium Oxide

    form a shiny orange color to the dark gray color characteristic of copper(II) oxide. Therefore, the product of this reaction is copper(II) oxide. The reaction is a synthesis reaction because copper and oxygen combine to form one compound.     In the second reaction, when the magnesium ribbon is heated, it undergoes the reaction, 2Mg(s) + O₂(g) → 2MgO(s). The magnesium reacted with oxygen in the air to form magnesium oxide when the magnesium ribbon was heated and it produced a white, matte, and crumbly

    which is suitable for reduction. Usually the sulphide ore is converted to oxide before reduction. Oxides are easier to reduce (for the reason see box). Thus isolation of metals from concentrated ore involves two major steps , they are: (a) conversion to oxide, and (b) reduction of the oxide to metal (a) Conversion to oxide (i) Calcination: Calcinaton involves heating when the volatile matter escapes leaving behind the metal oxide: Fe2O3.xH2O → Fe2O3 (s) + xH2O(g) ZnCO3 → ZnO(s)

  • Investigating The Amount Of Calcium On The Calcium Oxide Through The Processes Of Vacuum Filtration And Acid Base Titration Essay

    amount of calcium in Kirkland Signature’s Calcium 600mg +D3 through the processes of vacuum filtration and acid-base titration. These two methods were effective in determining the amount of calcium in the calcium supplement with an error of +/- 0.05 g; the amount of calcium stated on the label was 600 mg. The reactions that occurred during the process of vacuum filtration were: CaCO3 (s) + 2HCl(aq) → CaCl2 (aq) +CO2 (g) + H2O(l) CaCl2(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) → CaCO3(s) +2NaCl(aq) The amounts of calcium calculated

    produce a product of 75% silica (SiO2) and 25% sodium oxide (Na2O). This mixture will melt and fuse at a much lower temperature of 800°C. Unfortunately, the glass produced with this composition is water-soluble which is also known as water glass. This is not suitable for glass bottle since it need to contain water so, to stabilise the glass, other chemical substance is mixed into the composition such as calcium oxide (CaO) and magnesium oxide (MgO). The chemical mixtures are obtained by the addition
