Samenvatting

This study aims to understand the impact of carbonation on the photocatalytic self-cleaning and radiative cooling properties of autoclaved cement composites. The composites are prepared with varying silica contents and sources, with and without alumina addition under autoclave conditions. The phase composition, microstructure, optical properties, and photocatalytic self-cleaning performance are systematically characterized and analyzed. Outdoor measurements are conducted to validate the cooling performance of the material under ambient conditions. Cracking behaviors during autoclave/carbonation treatments and the performance degradation in functionalities upon carbonation are observed. The cement/nanosilica/alumina ternary system demonstrates the best overall performance, considering productibility during autoclave curing, effectiveness, and carbonation durability of functionalities. C-A-S-H minerals, mainly Al-Foshagite, in this system, serve as precursors for the generation of γ-Al2O3 upon carbonation, mitigating the deterioration of photocatalytic properties. The findings are expected to provide new insights for the development and engineering practice of functional cementitious materials for durable cooling applications.
