Abstract

A novel method to improving the dispersion and flame retardant efficiency of GO/graphene was proposed. GO was dually-modified with polymeric flame retardant and the nanomaterial with catalytic carbonation ability. Phosphazene flame retardant was grafted on GO nanosheets and then Ni(OH)2 nanosheets were loaded on the surface of the amine-rich FGO1 nanosheets via the strong interactions between amino groups and Ni2+. The modification enhanced the thermal stability of GO and its dispersion in PP matrix. The FGO increased the residual weight of the composites after combustion and reduced the emission of flammable volatile products. The PHRR, THR and smoke release were significantly reduced with the incorporation of FGO.
