Published: 03 December 2010

A paper co-written by Dean Webster, professor, and Dipak Chattopadhyay, former postdoctoral associate, both from the Department of Coatings and Polymeric Materials, is listed as one of the “Top 25 Hottest Articles” for the academic year in both the materials science and chemistry categories of ScienceDirect, the online journal publication of Elsevier. The paper, “Thermal Stability and Flame Retardancy of Polyurethanes,” was published in Oct. 2009 in the journal, Progress in Polymer Science. It is an extensive review of literature with more than 400 references describing how polyurethanes decompose at high temperatures and how heat stability and flame retardant properties can be improved for this important class of materials. The paper also is listed as one of the top 10 downloaded articles for the journal.
