Supplementary materials thatareutilized toreplaceordinary Portland cement(OPC) decreasethe workability of the cementitious mixtures and superplasticizers are usually added to cement to control their ﬂuidity. In general, current superplasticizers are solely optimized for single component systems such as OPC. Here, we report the performance of a series of a modiﬁed poly(carboxylate ether)-based superplasticizers (PCEs) in a ternary OPCcalcined clay-limestone blend. We have utilized: i) a co-monomer with high ionic character, 2-acrylamido-2methylpropane sulfonic acid (AMPS) to be incorporated into the acrylic acid backbone of PCEs and ii) low density of polyethylene glycol (PEG) grafted chains< 0.01 mol/mol. The optimized polymer does not intercalate into the layered structure of calcined clay and preserves its steric size in the presence of high concentration of sulfate ions.
