Abstract

This article addresses recent research developments in calcium sulphate based building materials (such as gypsum, CaSO4 ¿ H2O). They are based on an investigation of the hydration process of hemihydrate (CaSO4 ¿ 0.5H2O) and the resulting properties of dihydrate (CaSO4 ¿ 2H2O) and anhydrite (CaSO4). Also the development of new CaSO4-H2O based light-weight composites is presented. Finally, an additional functionality of CaSO4-H2O materials, viz. their air purifying capabilities, is addressed.
