A First-Principle Investigation into Combustion Chemistry of Novel Brominated Flame Retardants.

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

Aims This submission deals with providing an atomic-based insight into chemical phenomena pertinent to the environmental transformations and combustion/fire reactions encountered in the life cycle of a group of brominated hydrocarbons; called collectively novel brominated flame retardants (NBFRs). Significance and Innovation As thermal treatment and recycling activities represents mainstream strategies for disposal of materials ladenmore…

Fundamental Understanding of the Role of Single Molecular Oxygen in Spontaneous fires

By Daniel Bartels • February 18th, 2015

Some chemical reactions can occur spontaneously at room temperature, leading to self-heating, ignition and fires that result in loss of life and significant damage to Australian industries. In this project, we will identify these chemical reactions, and will develop new technologies to interrupt them to avoid spontaneous fires. AIMS: To determine the origin of themore…
