About this Research Topic
This Research Topic, Flame-Retardant Polymeric Materials and Flame-Retardant Polymer Composites (FRPMs&FRPCs), aims to feature the latest technological and scientific advances and future opportunities and challenges on flame-retardant materials. We also aim to broaden and deepen the scientific and technological knowledge with the most recent advances in the preparation, performance, and application of FRPMs&FRPCs with respect to the concept of long-term environmental, economic, and social sustainability. This Research Topic will be of great value to engineers, scientists, and decision-makers who are working in academia, industry, and government sectors. Also, it will greatly contribute to catalyzing the discovery and development of FRPMs&FRPCs while highlighting their associated challenges in sustainable development.
