Abstract: Hydration of -hemihydrate in the presence of different concentrations of tartaric, succinic, malic and citric acids was studied. All the acids, except tartaric acid, retard the hydrations. pH measurements have shown that during hydration acids are adsorbed at solid surfaces, leading to the retardation of hydration. E-modulus of elasticity, tensile strengths, total porosity, compressive strength, morphological and temperature changes during hydration were studied. It is found that morphological changes control the strength properties.
