Abstract

Brominated fire suppressants are effective and widely used. Due to their destruction of stratospheric ozone, however, the production of these chemical was halted in January 1994. Although testing and development of possible substitutes is occurring, a replacement with all of the desirable properties of CF3Br (the most common fire suppressant) has yet to be identified. Consequently, the Fire Science Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is conducting research to identify new chemical inhibitors, understand the mechanisms of inhibition of known or widely used agents, and evaluate the performance of proposed agents.
