The kinetics of the thermal decomposition of pentabromochlorocyclohexane (PBCCH), a flame retardant employed in foamed polystyrene, were determined by monitoring the rate of HBr/Br 2 evolution at temperatures between 195-240°C. The early stage of the decomposition is catalyzed by iron. The acti...
The ignition and combustion characteristics of loosely compacted commercial steel wool samples when introduced promptly into low velocity heated air streams and the morphology of the quenched residues were investigated. The effects of the important factors of sample compactness, stream...
The combustion toxicology of polyvinylchloride (PVC) has been studied exten sively against a background of increasing understanding of the relevance of the toxicity of combustion products in fires. Most materials have a similar toxic potency and demonstrate asphyxia and irritancy when thermally...
Two compartment fire experiments were conducted in a two storied ferro concrete building to investigate evolution of toxic gases and toxicity of at mospheres in the burn room and its surrounding area. One was the combustion of natural polymer contents, and the other was for synthetic polymer-...
