Abstract

This review paper provides an extensive assessment of the diverse roles played by water-soluble polymers in cementitious materials. It commences with an introduction that provides a thorough overview of the background, objectives and limitations of the review. Subsequently, the various types of water-soluble polymers, encompassing natural, semi-synthetic and synthetic variants, are examined in detail, alongside an exploration of their working mechanisms within cementitious materials. Mechanisms discussed include entanglement and association, adsorption and complexation, as well as bridging. Furthermore, this review delves into the influence of watersoluble polymers on the microstructure, fresh properties, mechanical properties and durability of cementitious materials. A comprehensive analysis of the challenges and opportunities associated with the implementation of water-soluble polymers in cementitious materials is also presented, followed by a summary of the key findings and recommendations for both practical applications and future research endeavors. Overall, this review provides invaluable insights for researchers and practitioners, shedding light on the multifaceted functions of water-soluble polymers in cementitious materials.
