    Abstract: The present work aims to study the coupled effect of alkali concentration and metakaolin (MK) on the resistivity of ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) to strength regression during ageing. GGBFS was activated by 6 and 10 wt., % containing mixture of sodium hydroxide (SH) and liquid sodium silicate (LSS) at a ratio of 1:1, respectively (na... Show More

    Abstract: Chemical agents represent a serious threat to the modern world. Among them, they stand out nerve agents because of its high lethality and dangerousness. They are typically organophosphate compounds, which act by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, a key enzyme in the transmission of nerve impulses process. There are several forms of treatment for orga... Show More
