Description - Fire-Resistant Paper: Materials, Technologies, and Applications by Ying-Jie Zhu

Even in today's electronic information age, traditional paper is a multi-purpose product that continues to be indispensable to people's daily work and lives. While paper is a valued product, the paper industry contributes to environmental pollution and consumption of natural resources, and the organic substances out of which traditional paper is made render it highly flammable and easy to burn. This book introduces a new technology to develop environmentally friendly fire-resistant paper using highly flexible ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires and discusses applications and potential for commercialization.

  • Discusses characterization, properties, and synthesis of ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires and compares them with cellulose fibers
  • Describes steps to design and create fire-resistant paper
  • Covers a variety of function-based fire-resistant paper, including antibacterial, magnetic, photoluminescent, among others
  • Examines a host of applications, such as paper for anti-counterfeiting, encryption and decryption, environmental, energy, and biomedical uses
  • Considers commercialization potential and future prospects

This book is aimed at materials scientists, chemical engineers, industrial chemists, and other researchers from across the scientific and engineering disciplines interested in the development of this exciting alternative to traditional paper.
