Abstract

Cementitious materials are the most widely used construction materials throughout the world. Recently, a number of studies have investigated the significant potential of graphene oxide (GO) for enhancing mechanical properties of cementitious materials and designing new composites. However, there is considerable inconsistency in the results of these studies showing different influences of GO on the mechanical behavior of composites because of the use of different GO materials and preparation conditions. In this study, we investigated the influence of GO contents on the physiochemical and mechanical properties of cement mortar composites.
