A phosphorus-containing epoxy resin has been derived from sebacic acid (SA) and formulated for flame-retardant applications. The results revealed that the coatings with added SA-based epoxy resin showed good mechanical, chemical, and solvent-resistance properties. Patil, Deepak M. et al., Journal of Coatings Technology and Research, 2019, Vol. 16, Iss. 2, pp. 531-542. 346,500 tonnes of additives will be consumed in Europe in 2022. Scientists developed a superhydrophobic/superoleophilic cotton by silica nanoparticles (~ 800 nm) treatment followed by surface functionalisation with methyltrichlorosilane (MTCS). X-ray diffraction, field ...
