The present invention relates, inter alia, to method of assessing the reactivity of a polymerizable material (especially an aluminosilicate) in forming a geopolymer. The present invention also relates to methods of forming a geopolymer, and to geopolymers formed by the method. The method of assessing the reactivity of the polymerizable material may include first assessing whether the polymerizable material is layered or particulate. Next, if the polymerizable material is layered, the method may include measuring the moles of polymerization network forming elements in an amount of polymerizable material, whereby the moles of polymerization network forming elements is indicative of the reactivity of the polymerizable material in forming a geopolymer. Alternatively, if the polymerizable material is particulate, the method may include measuring the molar charge of polymerization network modifiers in an amount of polymerizable material, whereby the molar charge of polymerization network modifiers is indicative of the reactivity of the polymerizable material in forming a geopolymer.
