Abstract. Results obtained on the funtionalizacion of inorganic polymers metakaolin based are presented. Geopolymers are not only cementitious material instead it will be shown how semiconductors, at nanometric scale, can be added as admixture compounds or incorporated in the aluminosilicates structures by ion exchange. In addition, the efficiency on adsorption and photodegradation of cationic organic compounds in aqueous suspention is described based on the kinetic evaluation by first and second order reaction.
