Details of the synthesis of refractory polyamide 6

Researchers at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Polytechnic of Turin and the National Institute of Chemistry published an article entitled “New sustainable flame retardant DOPO-NH-functionalized polyamide 6 and filament yarn” in the Chemical Engineering Journal.

Article presented the details of the synthesis of flame-retardant polyamide 6. Synthesized "green" phosphorus-based compound, developed in the Coating Development Laboratory, proved that it is possible to replace toxic, persistent and bioaccumulative halogenated compounds in PA 6-based textile products.

The results of the research provide key information for further studies and the transfer of covalently bound flame retardant additive to industry.
