Experimental results of a microstruetural study based on an extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) technique to investigate the mechanism involved in the immobilisation of heavy metal wastes by cement based stabilisation/solidification processes are presented. This study verifies the differential mode of interaction between heavy metals and the cementitious matrix and provides supportive evidence to the protective coating theory proposed for cement hydration.
