What is the content of this video tutorial ?

This video tutorial is divided in 9 topics. Its purpose is to give you an introduction, an insight on geopolymer science in general. It is aimed at university professors, doctorates, master students as well as self-learning researchers in the industry.

Outline of the tutorials

Topic #1: from invention to industrialization; 1972-2008: 36 years of research, development and applications
The course shows how the development of the geopolymer science concept was governed by the need to solve global technological problems in the industrial fields of extractive minerals, ceramics, cements, building materials, decorative stones and restoration works, fire and heat resistant composites, high-tech composites for aerospace, aircraft, naval and automobile, radioactive and toxic waste containment, thermal insulation.
It further provides a clear distinction between geopolymer and alkali-activated materials and highlights some historical milestones.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to make a clear cut between geopolymer technologies and low-tech/alkali-activated systems.

Topic #2: The mineral geopolymer concept
The course discusses the differences between the ionic and covalent bonding concepts. It introduces the molecular representation for geopolymeric structures based on the most recent results of physicochemical science.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to describe the fundamental principles and concepts of geopolymer science and technology.

Topic #3: Macromolecular structure of natural silicates and aluminosilicates
This course describes the numerous natural minerals and pinpoints their similarities to geopolymeric molecules (monomers, dimers, trimers, etc..) and macromolecules (polymers). It involves:
– Ortho-silicates, ring silicates,
– Linear poly-silicates: pyroxene, amphibole
– Sheet poly-silicates: kaolinite, pyrophillite, muscovite
– Framework poly-silicates: quartz, feldspars, feldspathoids, zeolites
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to explain the properties of the minerals used as raw-materials in geopolymer manufacturing.

Topic #4: Scientific tools, X-rays, FTIR, NMR
This course selects which analytical method is the most appropriate for the study of geopolymers, namely Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.

Topic #5: Macromolecular structure of Soluble Silicate, Poly(siloxonate) with Si:Al=1:0
This course revisits an old industry namely that of waterglass, a basic geopolymeric chemical ingredient. It involves:
– History of soluble silicates (waterglass), manufacture,
– Macromolecular structure of (Na,K)–silicate glasses,
– Hydrolysis, depolymerization of solid silicates
– Structure of poly(siloxonate) solutions (waterglass)
– NMR spectroscopy, macromolecular structure, identification of soluble species
– Density, Viscosity, pH, alkali silicate powders
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand the differences between Na-silicates and K-silicates and how to apply this new knowledge in the design of high-quality geopolymeric products.

Topic #6: Macromolecular chemistry of Metakaolin MK-750 and related geopolymers with Si:Al=1-3
This course follows the various structural changes of the mineral kaolinite into metakaolin and their implications in the geopolymerization mechanisms. It describes:
– Dehydroxylation mechanism of kaolinite
– Chemical mechanism, ortho-sialate molecules
– Kinetic, Chemical attack, Exothermic reaction
– Formation of Na-based geopolymeric frameworks: nepheline, albite, phillipsite
– Formation of K-based geopolymeric frameworks: kalsilite, leucite
Upon completion of this course you will be able to :
– Outline the identification and the study of metakaolin raw materials for geopolymeric precursors with selected instrumental methods.
– Identify the reaction mechanism from monomers, oligomers to polymers, kinetics and geopolymerization parameters.

Topic #7: Low-energy, Low-CO2 geopolymer cements
This course provides a thorough presentation and discussion on the basic knowledge about geopolymer cements and related building products based on the by-products of industrial and mining activities or Coal-Power-Plants: fly ashes. It comprises:
– MK-750 / slag-based geopolymer cement
– Rock-based geopolymer cement
– Fly ash-based geopolymer cement
– Greenhouse CO2 mitigation with geopolymer cement: Examples of low CO2 mitigation with geopolymer cements
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to describe the fundamental principles and concepts allowing the use of geological outcrops as well as mineral by-products and tailings, fly ashes, in low-energy and low-CO2 geopolymer cements manufacture.

Topic #8: Low-energy, Low-CO2 geopolymer ceramics
This course offers a comprehensive review of the impact of Geopolymer technology on the manufacture of Low-energy ceramics and bricks. It involves:
– Geopolymerization mechanism of kaolinite under co-valent bonding concept
– Geopolymeric setting at temperature below 65°C, 80°C and 450°C
– Resistance to water; physical properties
– Application to archaeological ceramics: 25.000 year-old geopolymer ceramic: Venus of Dolni Vestonice
Upon completion of the course, you will be able to apply the geopolymeric ceramic concept to implement modern Low-energy ceramic processing for the production of regular ceramic tiles (glazed) or fired bricks.

Topic #9: User-Friendly Systems
Although geopolymerization does not rely on toxic organic solvents but only on water, it needs chemical ingredients that may be dangerous. Some of them may be classified as user-hostile systems and therefore require some safety procedures.
Upon completion of the course, you will be able to understand the absolute necessity of implementing user-friendly geopolymeric systems.
