Abstract

We provide a discussion of some issues raised by a recent paper published in Journal of Materials Chemistry regarding the local structure of metakaolin. Furthermore, we show using synchrotron X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy (XANES) that tri-coordinated aluminium sites can exist in metakaolin, providing new evidence regarding the coordination environment of aluminium in metakaolin.
