The effect of calcined LDH-MgAl-CO3 on rebar corrosion behavior in chloride ion contaminated neutral concrete pore solutions was investigated in this paper.Corrosion potentials of rebars in pore solutions after treatment with CLDH were higher than before treatment.According to polarization tests,passivated region of rebars in pore solutions after treatment with CLDH was found apparently instead of activation.EIS tests showed that CLDH made the impedance of specimens increase.The measurements of pH and chloride ion concentration after treatment indicated that / of pore solutions decreased by 4~5 magnitude orders.
