    A novel electrical response technique for monitoring cement hydration is presented. The response data can be used to monitor the chemical and structure-building processes associated with hydration and also in assessing the influence of, for example, additives, cement composition and environment on these processes. Scanning electron microscopy is used to corroborate predictions about the state of the paste inferred from the electrical response. Practical applications of the method are discussed.
