    ABSTRACT: The aim of this research paper is to address the futuristic construction materials. Relevant data of the developments made during the recent past are also presented. It is believed that nanotechnology is going to play an important role in the development of futuristic building materials. The innovations could be two-fold; one is the modification of classical materials and the other should cover the invention of novel materials. The primary goal of all such materials should be environment friendliness. Secondarily, they should be durable and cost effective. Thirdly, they should address the space shortage. Innovations are needed as man is also planning to colonize moon and other planets. Fourthly, they should have adequate strength to cater the natural and manmade calamities. In short, they should serve the coming generations in the best possible way, which is the sole purpose of an engineering discipline. Keywords Futuristic building materials, environment friendliness, durable, cost effective, space shortage, Strength.

    ABSTRACT: Portland cement is the major chemical product processed in the world, more than 3.6 Bton at 2011, causing important environmental impacts. Several nano-particles have been tested in cement based materials in order to improve their performance and durability leading to an eco-efficiency use for this binder. Published researches for nano-particles in cement based materials have been demonstrated optimum volumetric contents considering the relative strength gain, directly related with packing and nucleation effect observed for nano-particles, and a pozzolanic reaction is observed for nano-SiO2.

    ABSTRACT: Graphene has attracted much attention in recent years due to its extraordinary electronic, optical, magnetic, thermal, and mechanical properties. Despite continuing theoretical and experimental success, the unique physical properties of graphene remain underused and underappreciated. The key challenge in harnessing of the unique properties of graphene is the difficulty of reliable manipulation of well-dispersed graphene which due to the surface properties of graphene. In this review, the recent developments of surface properties of graphene are summarized, where tailoring of these surface properties via surface treatments and the effects on the graphene-polymer matrix interface is highlighted. Moreover, the surface testing technique is also commented on briefly. We believe that the future prospects of research emphasis on preparation of modified graphene with special surface properties which would lead to better composites taking into account the desired cradle-to-grave lifecycle of reinforced materials with high performance. Finally, we expect that this review can contribute to a better knowledge of the physicochemical surface properties of graphene.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we reviewed the applications of hydrophilic and hydrophobic ionic liquids including their mixtures particularly between ionic liquids and chemical compounds for preparation of advanced polymer blends and composites. In the preceding researches we have found that ionic liquids and their mixtures could be effectively used as environmentally friendly solvent, plasticizer, coupling agent and compatibilizer. These materials have the ability to improve properties of polymer blends and composites that consisted of natural and synthetic polymers. On the other hand, we also included our previous and other studies that consumed the mixture of ionic liquids and chemical compounds for preparation of polymer blends and composites in the form of aerogels, films, composite films and biocomposites.

    ABSTRACT: Kaolins can satisfy the world demand for filler, paper and ceramic industries. If kaolin thermally activated, it converts to a pozzolan material named metakaolin (MK). MK can be used in traditional paste, mortar and concrete to improve their properties. In addition, MK can be used as a source of cementing materials without Portland cement (PC) named geopolymer. This literature presents an overview of the pervious works carried out on the effect of MK on the fresh properties and mechanical strength of traditional cementitious materials based on PC in which MK was used as cement replacement. In addition, the optimum content of MK which exhibited the highest 28 days compressive strength was reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments in many areas of nanotechnology show significant promise in addressing many challenges. Researches and developments have shown that the application of nanotechnology can improve the performance of traditional construction materials, such as concrete. Noteworthy improvements in concrete strength, durability and sustainability are being achieved by using different types of nanoparticles such as nano-TiO2 (NT). This paper presents an overview of the previous works carried out on the effect of NT on some properties as heat of hydration, workability, setting time, chemical shrinkage, mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, fire resistance, freeze/thaw resistance, water absorption, chloride penetration and permeability of the traditional plain or blended cement systems. In addition, this survey presents a comparison of some properties of the matrix containing NT versus that containing other nano particles. This overview can be considered as a short guide for Civil Engineer.

    ABSTRACT: Cellulose has found to be one of the renewable, biodegradable and biocompatible resources. The entire prospective of the biopolymers has not been fully exploited due to the obstinate nature of biomass, which allows its solubility only in limited number of common solvents and the inability to easily tailor natural polymer properties. During last few decades, ionic liquids have been suggested as green and sustainable solvents for not only their dissolution but also regeneration of the biomass. A detailed account of different prospects and recent developments in this field has been summarized and presented.

    ABSTRACT: Polymers are perhaps the most important materials for the present era of science and technology. They are employed in nearly every device, involving the interior of every automobile to several biomedical applications. Their diverse properties and wide range applicability prove them to be classified as modern materials or advance materials. In context to their great potential and widespread applicability, the characterization of polymeric solution is rapid growing area for the researchers and scientists. Various techniques have been employed up til now to elucidate their various structural aspects and hidden secrets of their functional aspects. A brief review of the techniques used to characterize polymeric solutions has been presented.
