A two day international symposium on fire Retardants – vital chemicals protecting people and property in all walks of life and particularly in areas such as mass transport, furnishings, construction, electrical equipment and electronics. Different fire retardant strategies have evolved from halogen flame retardants to metal hydroxides and more modern char forming and intumescent fire retardants. More recently phosphorus based materials and nanocomposites have shown potential to reduce flammability whilst addressing environmental concerns.
