Scholarcy highlights

  • We investigated the influence of thermally reduced graphene oxides at different reduction temperatures on the thermal, mechanical and flame retardant performances of polystyrene
  • The results indicated that disordered expanded layer structure can be obtained as the reduction temperature increases from 200 to 500 and 800 °C, which could lead to better dispersion of TGO sheets in PS matrix
  • Noticeable improvement in flame retardant performance were achieved with the addition of TGO5 and TGO8, TGO8, due to the removal of the functional oxygen groups from GO and the barrier effect of intumescent and loosely structure of char layers
