A device is described that has been used for several years for expression of pore solution from hardened portland cement pastes and mortars. Particulars with respect to the design, fabrication, and operation of such equipment are given, and methods for the analysis of the resulting small volumes of pore solutions are briefly discussed. It is believed that the compositions of the pore solutions obtained are representative of that of the bulk of the pore solution within the paste or mortar from which the solutions have been obtained.
