For those too twitchy to sit still and focus on breathing, the ubiquitous mindfulness apps, self-help sheets and courses in schools and workplaces are little more than totems of uselessness.

Publication date: August 2018 Source:Polymer Degradation and Stability, Volume 154 Author(s): Zong-Min Zhu, Wen-Hui Rao, A-Hui Kang, Wang Liao, Yu-Zhong Wang Herein, expandable graphite (EG) and aluminum hypophosphite (AP) are used to prepare flame-retardant polystyrene (PS) composites. The flame-retardant properties of the PS composites are investigated by the limiting oxygen index (LOI) test, vertical burning test (UL-94) and cone calorimetry test (CC). With 15 wt% EG or AP incorporated alone, the PS composites show limited improvement in LOI, and fail to pass the UL-94 test. In contrast, with 10 wt% EG and 5 wt% ...
