Cement’s Basic Molecular Structure Finally Decoded


Concrete being poured from a cement truck chute on a new sidewalk construction project.

In the 2,000 or so years since the Roman Empire employed a naturally occurring form of cement to build a vast system of concrete aqueducts and other large edifices, researchers have analyzed the molecular structure of natural materials and created entirely new building materials such as steel, which has a well-documented crystalline structure at the atomic scale.
