Considering the melamine formaldehyde(MF) resin with encapsulated red phosphorus(MFRP) releases large amounts of phosphine in the process of transportation, storage and application, MFRP was modified with glycol and 1,4-butanediol to reduce the release of phosphine and its phosphine release quantity was compared with unmodified MFRP. Under the condition of simulating material processing, pure red phosphorus(RP) released 44.51 mg/L phosphine, MFRP released 24.13 mg/L phosphine and modified MFRP released 8.05 mg/L, respectively. It is obvious that the modification has significant effect on the release quantity. The structures of MFRP before and after modification were characterized with FTIR. The results of TG/DTG show that the initial decomposition temperature of the modified MFRP is reduced from 264 ℃ to 182 ℃, while the maximum decomposition rate is decreased from 11%/min to 4.1%/min and the amount of residues remains the same(11%) at 800 ℃.
