Published: 6/24/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Edward D. McCarthy, Douglas Matthew Fox, Paul Hutsell Maupin, Li Piin Sung, Yeon Seok Kim
Abstract: One of the most enduring problems in the evolution of science and technology using nanoscale materials is the characterization of their morphology in macroscopic systems.1 This involves spatial and orientation distribution, which may be multimodal an ...

12. Char ‹ Forming Behavior of Nanofibrillated Cellulose Treated with Glycidyl Phenyl POSS
Published: 4/15/2012
Authors: Douglas Matthew Fox, Jieun Lee, Mauro Zammarano, Dimi Katsoulis, Donald V. Eldred, Luke Haverhals, Paul C Trulove, Hugh C De Long, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: Cellulose-reinforced composites have received much attention due to their structural reinforcing, light weight, biodegradable, non-toxic, low cost and recyclable characteristics. However, the tendency for cellulose to aggregate and its poor dispersi ...

13. Flexible polyurethane foam with well characterized and reproducible smoldering
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis, Roland H. Kraemer
Abstract: Smoldering is a self-sustaining heterogeneous oxidation reaction that induces a slow, low temperature, flameless combustion.1 Flexible polyurethane foams (PUF) are particularly prone to smoldering due to their high air permeability and low density. I ...

14. Extent and Quality of Interface in Cellulose-PE Nanocomposites
Published: 8/28/2011
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Paul Hutsell Maupin, Li Piin Sung, Jeffrey W Gilman, Edward D. McCarthy, Yeon Seok Kim, Douglas M. Fox

15. Revealing the Interphase in Polymer Nanocomposites
Published: 3/16/2011
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Paul Hutsell Maupin, Li Piin Sung, Jeffrey W Gilman, Douglas Matthew Fox
Abstract: Morphological characterization of polymer nanocomposites is a fundamental challenge that is complicated by multiple length scales. Here, we report a technique for high-throughput monitoring of interphase and dispersion in polymer nanocomposites based ...

16. Absorption of Thermal Radiation by Burning Polymers
Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Mauro Zammarano, Boris Wilthan, Leonard M Hanssen
Abstract: In large-scale fires, the input of energy to burning materials occurs predominantly by radiative transfer. The in-depth absorption of radiant energy by a polymer influences its ignition time and burning rate. The present investigation examines two m ...

Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Douglas Matthew Fox, Szabolcs Matko, Takashi Kashiwagi, Jeffrey W Gilman, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Scientists are shifting their attention towards technology sustainability and sustainable materials, specifically in terms of energy and environmental impacts. The flame retardant community is also more concerned about these aspects. The recent bann ...

18. Microencapsulated POSS in Cellulose Using 1-Ethyl-3-Methylimidazolium Acetate
Published: 10/10/2010
Authors: Douglas Matthew Fox, Mauro Zammarano, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: Polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) and cellulose were reacted in the ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate (EmiAc). Side reactions between the EmiAc and each reactant were prevalent, but use of water as the coagulating solvent p ...

19. POSS modified cellulose for improving flammability characteristics of polystyrene
Published: 4/2/2010
Authors: Douglas Matthew Fox, Mauro Zammarano, Jeffrey W Gilman, Jieun Lee, Eric Balsley, Erica Ford
Abstract: Due to its strength, charring ability, and biodegradability, cellulose-based reinforced polymers have received considerable attention. However, its high polarity, large molecular size, and solvent resistivity, have often resulted in immiscible or ag ...

20. Heat release and structural collapse of flexible polyurethane foam
Published: 1/1/2010
Authors: Roland H. Kraemer, Mauro Zammarano, Gregory T Linteris, Ulf Wil Gedde, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: Flexible polyurethane foam used in upholstered furniture remains one of the major fire hazards to date. The heat release rate of burning items made of foam depends strongly on the foam‰s physical behavior, notably its collapse to a burning liquid tha ...
