This publication describes progress in the flame retardancy of natural and synthetic fibres/fabrics. Such progress evolves from traditional approaches (back-coating methods), current chemical solutions (P-, N-, S-, B-based flame retardants) to novel contemporary strategies (deposition and/or assembly of architectures, plasma treatments, sol-gel processes, and so on). More specifically, the fundamental aspects and chemistry of flame-retardant textile technologies (including back-coating process) and the obtained improvements are reviewed thoroughly, taking into account the detrimental environmental effects due to the use of halogen-based additives such as bromine derivatives. Then, an overview of the chemical development of flame retardant strategies based on halogen-free compounds is summarised. The third part of this book is devoted to the description of contemporary innovatory solutions based on nanotechnology. In detail, the surface deposition of coatings having a different chemical structure is highlighted. To this aim, the effect of (nano)architectures derived from (nano)particle adsorption, plasma deposition/grafting, layer-by-layer assembly, and sol-gel treatments on fibres/fabrics are discussed thoroughly.
This four week, 55 page journey will encourage you to practice holy housework, as you invite Jesus to be your constant reason and companion for spring cleaning. It will help you purge your closets and drawers to live more freely and lightly, both physically and spiritually! Then you will move on to cleaning your master bedroom, children's rooms, kitchen, and living areas. The author connects the area being cleaned to scripture in a creative but purposeful way. You will never look at spring cleaning the same way again!
