Plasma polymer hexamethyldisiloxane, ethyldichlorophosphate and tris(butoxyethyl)phosphate modified polyacrylonitrile fibers were examined by FTIR, XRF, and SEM and the extend of flame retardancy introduced were checked. Certain levels of concentrations of flame-retardant elements grafted or coated at the fiber surface during plasma treatment are believed to overcome some negative effects of a number of reactions that usually are concurrent with plasma polymerization, such as crosslinking.
