Usage of Red Phosphorous

  1. Aug 29, 2014 #1

    Whom can i ask about the usage/function of Red Phosphorous in metals and plastics or any polymer?

    In some applications, red phosphorus can be used as a flame retardant, especially for plastics.

    Does anyone have a case study or knows the best about this element?

    Thank you.

    Why don't you go the college or university library and ask for help there? If anyone did any research, it was published. If it not published, it is proprietary and nobody will tell you details on the public forum.
