Advances in dissolution understanding and their implications for cement hydration
Recent advances in bridging kinetics and thermodynamics of mineral dissolution have opened new horizons in our understanding of the role of dissolution in cement hydration. Indeed most hydration kinetic regimes of alite can be rationally envisioned from a dissolution perspective. This short note reviews some key findings on dissolution mechanisms and their implication for cementitious systems.
