Abstract: This paper reviews the chemical admixtures preventing delayed ettringite formation (DEF) and can be used for researchers to (i) identify potential chemicals alternative to the conventional methods using supplementary cementing materials (SCMs) and evaluate these chemical solutions to prevent DEF via reported mechanisms, (ii) understand the effects of these chemicals on the concrete properties, and (iii) develop guidelines and/or implementation plan for future research.
