The latest techniques used to prove, describe and analyze the gas phase activity of a fire retardant used in polymeric materials are briefly reviewed. Classical techniques, such as thermogravimetric analysis or microscale combustion calorimetry, as well as complex and advanced analytical techniques, such as modified microscale combustion calorimeter (MCC),(More)
The production of phosphoryl species (PO, PO2, HOPO) is believed to be of great importance for efficient flame-retardant action in the gas phase. We present a detailed investigation of the thermal decomposition of dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP) probed by vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) synchrotron radiation and imaging photoelectron photoion coincidence(More)
The thermal behavior of organophosphorus compounds is intricate and poorly understood but crucial for understanding gas-phase flame inhibition, syntheses of thermally active phosphorus-based reactive precursors, catalytic combustion, incineration of toxic nerve gases, and astrochemistry. In this work, the pyrolysis of dimethyl phosphoramidate was(More)
