This review provides an overview of the health hazards of the polymeric materials emissions under combustion. As well as, addressing the importance of using metal oxides nanoparticles as flame retardants additives, especially ZnO, Fe2O3, MgO and Al2O3, since these nano-oxides catalyze the formation of thermal barrier (char barrier) to prevent polymeric materials to burn, and to prevent its toxic hazard emissions.

Keywords:Metal oxide nanoparticles; Toxic hazard emissions; Flame retardant
