Overview on Research

My research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of bio-based cyclomatrix polyphosphazenes and the application of these polymers as environmentally friendly flame retardants. The colloidal polyphosphazene particles are applied on textiles or plastics as coating or additives and the flame-retardant properties are investigated. The efficiency of the flame retardant can be directly influenced by the polymer composition and the amount of coating.

Research focus

  • Synthesis and characterization of cyclomatrix polyphosphazenes with variable structures and architectures
  • Introduction of the polyphosphazene-based additives to plastics and textiles
  • Application as environmentally friendly flame retardant
