AbstractFor the production of geopolymers, aluminosilicates are activated by an alkaline solution. The first step in the geopolymerization process is the dissolution of the aluminosilicate. In order to study the dissolution process of aluminosilicate and siliceous materials in alkaline solutions, ten representative samples of raw materials from different locations from Jordan were investigated
-Aluminosilicate materials: kaolinite, smectite rich clay, diatomaceous clay, zeolitic tuff, volcanic tuff, basalt, and granite.
-Siliceous materials: calcareous porcelanite, silica sand, and tripoli
