Abstract

Melamine is an aromatic, nitrogen-containing compound used to produce a myriad of items ranging from kitchenware to laminates. In this project, it was attempted to determine whether another use for melamine, as a starting material for the production of a reactive flame retardant, could be achieved through synthetic modifications. A series of bifunctional derivatives were formed, and although some polymerization reactions were unsuccessful, alternate routes exist that can be attempted going forward.
