Investigators from Islamic Azad University Zero in on Nanoparticles (Synergistic Effect Between Sb2O3 Nanoparticles-Trichloromelamine and Carbon Nanotube on the Flame Retardancy and Thermal Stability of the Cellulose Acetate)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Research findings on Nanoparticles are discussed in a new report. According to news originating from Arak, Iran, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Sb2O3 nanoparticles were synthesized via a simple surfactant-free sonochemical reaction. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) have been successfully functionalized with amino groups."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Islamic Azad University, "Cellulose acetate (CA) as a polymeric matrix was choosing in this work. In order to improve the thermal stability and flame retardancy of the CA, nanoparticles, aminated-MWCNT and trichloromelamine (TCM) were added to the polymeric matrix. The nanocomposites were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and UL-94 analysis. Flame retardancy of the nanocomposite was improved as a result of synergistic effect between Sb2O3 and TCM."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Result show that thermal decomposition of the nanocomposites was shifted towards higher temperatures."
