Flame Retardant Properties of Polymer/Layered Double Hydroxide N Nanocomposites

Abstract

Layered double hydroxide (LDH) as a promising class of anionic clays consists of mixed metal hydroxides and tunable interlayer anions. The highly tunable nature of LDH facilitates the preparation of high-performance and multifunctional polymer nanocomposites. Polymer/LDH nanocomposites have been proved to possess enhanced mechanical properties, thermal stability, and flame retardancy. This chapter mainly concentrates on the recent progress in synthesis of LDH with well-defined morphology and excellent properties, novel strategies for fabricating exfoliated LDH/polymer nanocomposites, and their applications as flame retardants. Synergetic effects by combining LDH with other additives on the flame-retardant properties of polymer nanocomposites are also presented and discussed.
