Abstract

A number of phosphorus-containing acrylic monomers were synthesised and copolymerised with acrylonitrile (AN), under radical initiation in an inert atmosphere, through an aqueous slurry route. It was found that the incorporation of phosphonate groups in polyacrylonitrile (PAN) chains resulted in improved flame-retardant characteristics. It was also observed that the actual chemical environment of phosphorus atom in the modifying groups has an influence on the thermal degradation and combustion attributes of the modified systems.
