Abstract

Water soluble sulfonated butanone formaldehyde (SBF) polycondensate superplasticizer was prepared according to a conventional method. UV-Vis, IR and TGA analyses were performed to analyze the target compound. The surface activity was evaluated. It showed a little surface activity with respect to water as the surface tension decreased very little with increasing the concentration of SBF. Thus there results indicate that SBF behaves like a typical polycondensate superplasticizer such as sulfonated acetone formaldehyde (SAF).
