Title: Drying-induced atomic structural rearrangements in sodium-based calcium-alumino-silicate-hydrate gel and the mitigating effects of ZrO 2 nanoparticles

Drying-induced nanoscopic alterations to the local atomic structure of silicate-activated slag and the mitigated effects of nano-ZrO2 are elucidated using in situ X-ray pair distribution function analysis.
