Abstract- The organic impurities in sand primarily comprise of carbon material in the form of decay of vegetables, trees and remains of animals. This paper covers an approximate determination of presence of possible injurious organic compounds in
Feb 29, 2016 Organic impurities in sand may be either due to decayed vegetation, humus, coal particles, or organic and industrial wastes depending upon the source of the sand. It is generally considered that organic impurities retard the setting of cement and thus have deleterious effect on the strength of concrete or mortar.

1. Organic Impurities . Organic impurities interfere with the hydration reaction. Frequently, it is found in sand and consists of products of decay of vegetable matter. Organic matter may be removed from sand by washing. Colorimetric test recommended by ASTM C 40-92 can be used to determine aggregate organic content.
Effect of Impurities - The impurities such as clay, dust and organic materials are harmful for mortar and concrete. Of these clay is most harmful since it coats individual sand particles and prevents their bonding with cement consequently diminishing the strength of mortar which is further reduced by the enhanced water requirement of mortar.
