Research

Without special treatment, organic materials such as paper or textiles are, with few exceptions, classified as flammable or highly flammable. Nearly 20% of residential fire incidents and approximately 50% of fatalities are caused by paper, wood, and textiles as the first materials to ignite.

In collaboration with the DWI, the aim is to develop and provide a bio-based, highly efficient, toxicologically safe and economically favorable flame retardant based on phosphazene-polyphenol-based cyclomatrix polymers.

Research focus

  • Synthesis of biobased bisphenol derivatives as molecular building blocks for polyphosphazene syntheses.
