Phosphorous-containing bio-based flame-retardant materials
A new review describes the phosphorus-based flame-retardant (FR) coating materials derived from the bio-resources. It segregates the coatings according to their polymeric backbone type and correlates their structure with the end-application properties. The review provides a readership to understand different chemistries of FR systems and implement similar in developing the bio-based FR systems for coatings.
Furthermore, the review targets to brief the various mechanisms of phosphorus-based FR coating systems depending upon the resin type, such as epoxy, phenolic, polyurethane. The synergistic effects of phosphorus and other FR moieties are also discussed, along with their synthesis chemistries and the structural impact on the properties.
The review has been published in Journal of Coatings Technology and Research, Volume 20, Issue 1, January 2023.
