Abstract

A novel strategy was developed for the preparation of 3D nanostructure to improve the flame retardancy and toxic effluents elimination of epoxy resins (EP) via synergistic catalytic effect. Herein, the synthesis of cross-linked organic–inorganic polyphosphazene nanoshells (PZM) with amino-rich groups was reported via a facile condensation polymerization of hexachlorocyclotriphosphazene (HCCP) and 4,4'-diaminodiphenyl ether (ODA) on silica (SiO2) nanospheres as templates. Then cuprous oxide nanoparticles (Cu2O NPs) were synthesized by simultaneous chemical reduction method on the surface of polyphosphazene nanoshells. Subsequently, the obtained SiO2
