Abstract The thermal degradation behaviors of a novel nanocomposite based on polypropylene and organic Co/Al layered double hydroxide (PP/CoAl-LDH) were studied via thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) in the present work. The thermal degradation activation energies of the PP/CoAl-LDH nanocomposite were determined via Friedman and Flynn–Wall–Ozawa methods, and were compared with those of neat PP. The relationship between the organic CoAl-LDH concentration and the activation energies in PP/CoAl-LDH nanocomposite also has been investigated. An internal reason and an outer reason leading to high fire retardancy of PP/CoAl-LDH nanocomposite were proposed. The presence of CoAl-LDH tended to increase significantly the decomposition activation energy of nanocomposite at full-scale temperature and had an important influence on both of internal and outer reasons.
