The thermal degradation of untreated wool and wool treated with a number of flame retardants has been studied in a variety of atmospheres using thermogravimetric analysis and pyrolysis–gas chromatography. The major products of pyrolysis have been identified and their amounts determined. Gas evolution curves have been determined for the main light gases evolved.
