Geopolymer Scientific papers on exponential growth

The number of scientific papers dealing with geopolymer science & technology is following an exponential growth, due in part to the emergence of China as a major contributor (since 2008). The following chart displays the evolution of the number of geopolymer papers published from 1991 (publication of Davidovits’ reference paper in J. Thermal Analysis), up to 2009, referenced in Science Direct + SpringerLink. Other publications, such as conference proceedings are not accounted for in these two statistical tools, and are therefore listed separately in the additional chart for Geopolymer Conferences GP’1999, GP’2002, GP’2005.
