Moreover, the inorganic salts broke the electrovalent bonds of zwitterionic copolymer and damaged its intermolecular association.
At a low temperature, the intramolecular and intermolecular associations of copolymer are formed through hydrogen bond, van der Waals force and electrovalent bond, which interact with the active sites on cement grains to exhibit a three-dimensional network structure, leading to the particle agglomeration.
2] groups react with glyoxal and produce strong primary electrovalent bonds to improve mechanical strength of the crosslinked resin (25-27).
