AbstractCalcium silicate hydrates (C-S-H), which form during the hydration of the silicate phases present in Portland cement, are the main binding phases that result in the formation of a hardened mass. The structure of C-S-H polymer nanocomposites formed as a result of a co-precipitation technique under fixed temperature and pH conditions was studied. XRD analysis and other related analytical techniques such as: 13C and 29Si MAS-NMR, FTIR, TGA/DTA, TMA and TEM were used to characterize a selected number of C-S-H samples intercalated with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) at different concentrations.
