The Perspective Applications of Graphene Oxide in Construction and Building Materials
Graphene oxide (GO) is an attractive nanomaterial in reinforcing cementitious composites due to the excellent mechanical properties. This paper presents the perspective applications of GO in the construction building materials, including the Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC), Strain Hardening Cementitious Composites (SHCCs) and Phase Change Materials (PCMs). In this study, the effect of GO on the mechanical properties of cement paste is firstly introduced. Then, the interface strengthening between the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) fiber and cement matrix of the SHCCs by GO addition is investigated. Finally, the improved thermal and leakage-bearing properties of PCMs modified by GO is discussed. In conclusion, GO has a great potential in building applications in the future.
