"New generation of eco-benign fire retardant and nanocomposites"
Fire retardants can significantly improve the fire safety of the materials leading to enhance security and reduction of risks in the case of fire. The development of novel eco-benign, high performance fire retardants and materials is attractive not only from industrial but also from environmental and socio-economical standpoints. This project presents an interdisciplinary and innovative approach to design a new generation of eco-benign multifunctional Layered Double Hydroxides(LDH)-based fire retardant nanocomposites in which LDH will be modified by bio-based multifunctional intumescent fire retardants. A new generation of environment-friendly fire retardant materials with enhanced smoke suppression and multifunctional properties is expected to be developed within the project.
