Preparation of low-cost nano and microcomposites from chicken eggshell, nano-silica and rice husk ash and their utilisations as additives for producing geopolymer cements

This work aims to prepare low-cost nanocomposite and microcomposite with lower molar ratio CaO/SiO2 (0.4). Nano-silica, rice husk ash and calcined chicken eggshell have been used as silica and calcium sources. Metakaolin has been separately replaced by 0, 10 and 20 wt% of each composite in order to...
