AbstractIn this work we study the influence of adding nano-silica (SiO2, Nyasil™) and aminopropyl (-(CH2)3-NH2,) functionalized silica nanoparticles (Stoga) during the synthesis of calcium-silicate-hydrate (C-S-H gel). Characterization by solid state 29Si NMR and ATR-FTIR spectroscopy showed that the addition of both particle types increases the average length of the silicate chains in C-S-H gel being this effect slightly more important in the case of Stoga particles. In addition, 13C NMR and XPS confirmed that the aminopropyl chain remains in the final product cleaved to silicon atoms at the end of the silicate chain of C-S-H gel whereas XRD measurements showed that this result in an increment in the basal distance compared with ordinary CSH. In addition, the dynamics of water within the pores of C-S-H gel was analyzed by broadband dielectric spectroscopy. We observed that water confined in C-S-H formed with the addition of nanoparticles is faster than that in plain C-S-H which can be related to a different porous structure in these materials.
