Abstract:

Methods for detecting, identifying, and quantitatively measuring carbohydrates and salts of hydroxylated carboxylic-acid admixtures in concrete were investigated. Two published methods for detecting sugar and an unpublished method for detecting both sugar and sodium gluconate were evaluated. Other methods investigated included thin-layer chromatography, infrared spectroscopy, and high-pressure liquid chromatography.
