This work deals with the synthesis of new melamine superplasticizer (NMS) with high molecule weight and comparatively high processing thermostability by the reaction among melamine, formaldehyde, and sulfonated glucose. The surface activity and the structure of new melamine superplasticizer and their performance in concrete were evaluated. The effect of molecular weight of synthesized new melamine superplasticizer on the performance of the concrete was determined. The results showed that the new melamine superplasticizer has been proved to be more efficient as a superplasticizer used in concrete.
