Flame Retardant Nanocomposites: Emergent Nanoparticles and their Applications covers the broad area of flame retardant polymer nanocomposites, their preparation, fire retardant mechanisms, and the various factors that affect them. The influence of various nanoparticles on their flammability is discussed in detail, as well as their structure, free radical trapping ability, char formation, and eventual barrier properties. This book will be a valuable reference resource for students, researchers, and engineers covering this important field of research. Chapters discuss the effect of different nanoparticles, their dispersion, and the effect of different polymer structures on fire retardant properties, along with possible applications.
