Abstract:At Nanotech 2009, we presented evidence that CNFs used as fire retardants in polyurethane foam (PUF), were destroyed in the flames and, therefore, were not released when CNF containing foams are burned under well-ventilated conditions. In this talk, we will present additional results, which suggest that despite the fact that they are not present in the smoke, it is likely that significant amounts of CNFs are released when the chars left behind after burning CNF containing PUFs are mechanically disturbed.
