Paper Title:
Fire Retardant Cellulose Characterized by Thermal Degradation Behavior
  Abstract

Cellulose treated with fire retardant was studied by thermogravimetry (TG), differential thermal analysis (DTA) and limiting oxygen index (LOI). The kinetic parameters for the thermal degradation are obtained following the method of Broido. For the fire retardant cellulose, the activation energy and decomposition temperature were much decreased while char yield and LOI were increased. The main thermal decomposition of the samples with higher LOI occurs at lower temperatures, while that with lower LOI occurs at higher temperatures.
