Book Description

Flame Retardant Polymeric Materials provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the field, from basic properties and mechanisms of action for flame retardants to emerging methods, materials, and industrial applications.

With over 120 black and white images, Hu and Wang cover the latest in the development of novel polymer nanocomposites such as graphene, CNTs, LDHs, POSS, and techniques such as layer-by-layer assembly. These expert authors also include discussions on the important flame-retardant systems based on phosphorus, silicon, and boron. In doing so, they highlight the use of flame-retardants in varying industries, for example, construction, textiles, and aviation.

This comprehensive handbook is an essential read for students and academics of physics with a particular interest in flame-retardant materials. It would also be recommended for professionals within the materials science and engineering fields.

Biography

Yuan Hu is head of the Department of Safety Science and Engineering of the University of Science and

Technology of China (USTC) and Director of the Institute of Fire Safety Materials of USTC. He obtained

his PhD from USTC in 1997. Prof. Hu has done research on fire safety materials for more than 20 years.

His main research area includes: polymer/inorganic compound nanocomposites, new flame retardants

and their flame retardant polymer, synthesis and properties of inorganic nanomaterials, combustion,

and decomposition mechanism of polymer. Prof. Hu has published more than 400 papers (Science

Citation Index) in research areas covering the range of fire safety of materials. Moreover, more than 40

invention patents have been authorized.

 

Xin Wang is an associate professor in the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).

He earned his PhD in Safety Science and Engineering from the USTC in 2013. Dr. Wang leads the high

performance polymer nanocomposite group, setting technical direction and building partnerships with

both industrial and academic communities, in order to promote the development of high performance

flame retardant polymeric materials. Dr. Wang’s research interests focus on synthesis of novel halogenfree

flame retardants and preparation of layered nanomaterials and their use in flame retardant polymer

nanocomposites. Dr. Wang has published more than 70 papers in the peer-reviewed international journals

(citations 1980, H index = 36) in the field of flame retardant polymeric materials.
