Thermal Stability of Cotton Cellulose Modified with Flame Retardants
The thermal stability of cotton cellulose treated with chemical mixtures containing P and N was studied by thermal analysis, infrared spectroscopy, char yield and limiting-oxygen-index (LOI). Our experiments demonstrated that the temperature and activation energy of pyrolysis were lower and the values of Char yield and LOI were greater for cotton cellulose treated with flame retardant than those for untreated sample.
