Magnesium silicate hydrate (M-S-H) is a low pH alternative cementitious binder to commonly used Portland cement. Low pH cements have been considered as promising matrix for municipal and nuclear waste immobilization in the last decades. It is however crucial to assure that the incorporation of secondary ions is not detrimental for the formation of the hydration products. Herein, we investigate the early stages of formation of M-S-H from electrolyte solutions in presence of a wide range of metal cations (LiI, BaII, CsI, CrIII, FeIII, CoII, NiII, CuI, ZnII, PbII, AlIII). The final solid products obtained after 24 h have been characterized via powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR-ATR), elemental analysis via energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM). In all the experiments, the main precipitated phase after 24 h was confirmed to be M-S-H with a ratio (total metal/Si) close to one. The obtained M-S-H products showed strong immobilization capacity for the secondary metal cations and can incorporate up to 30% of the total metal content at the early stages of M-S-H formation without significantly delaying the nucleation of the M-S-H. It has been observed that presence of Cr, Co, and Fe in the solution is prolonging the growth period of M-S-H. This is related to a higher average secondary metal/total metal ratio in the precipitated material. Secondary phases that co-precipitate in some of the experiments (Fe, Pb, Ni, and Zn) were also effectively trapped within in the M-S-H matrix. Barium was the only element in which the formation of a secondary carbonate phase isolated from the M-S-H precipitates was detected.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Ruiz Agudo, Cristina</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Marsiske, Maximilian R.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Churakov, Sergey V.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Debus, Christian</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Bernard, Ellina</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Churakov, Sergey V.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-04-23T10:09:46Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Di Lorenzo, Fulvio</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Di Lorenzo, Fulvio</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2021-04</dcterms:issued> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Immobilization of (Aqueous) Cations in Low pH M-S-H Cement</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Ruiz Agudo, Cristina</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Marsiske, Maximilian R.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
