Research Information

Structure-property relationship of flame retardants

Techron et al. developed a series of polymer flame retardants and elaborated the structure-activity relationship between molecular structure and performance. The study found that the chemical groups on the main chain of the prepared P-N polymer flame retardants seriously affected its pyrolysis behavior, thermal stability and flame retardant properties. Compounds with oxygen atoms in the main chain of the molecule have higher thermal stability and lower heat release, showing excellent flame retardant properties.
