Clay Catalysis and Fire Retardancy of Polymer/Clay Nanocomposites: A Complete Overview

  • Indraneel Suhas Zope
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter summarizes the idea behind this thesis based on the set hypothesis and obtained results (discussed thus far). Supplementary test data are provided to prove specific points to further strengthen the overall argument made. Lastly, continuing questions are briefly discussed with strategies for future work.
