Abstract

This study investigated the effects of particle size on the hydrolysis reaction of DCPD at pH 7 and 37 C and on the setting properties of a TTCP/DCPD cement. The kinetics of the hydrolysis reaction was controlled by a nucleation and growth mechanism following an initial induction period. The data suggested that nucleation occurred at one time and the growth was interface-controlled. DCPD of a smaller particle size led to an earlier and faster DCPD hydrolysis. The corresponding TTCP/DCPD cement hardened more rapidly and with less residual DCPD.
