Description

Nanotechnology in Textiles: Theory and Application explains how conventional methods for treating fabrics for specific functions can by improved upon with the use of nanotechnology. Overviews of relevant, fundamental nanophysics and nanochemistry theory are provided, along with explanations of their application in textile finishing, providing a crucial resource for readers exploring this expanding frontier in textiles. The book draws on research from around the globe to address the latest nanotechnological developments that are all examined with references to industrial applications.

Key Features

  • Provides a complete, theoretical overview of nanotechnology and nanofibers for those with materials science or engineering backgrounds
  • Covers a broad range of topics, including aerogels, polymer nanocomposites, nanohazards, and electrospinning
  • Looks ahead to emerging applications of nanotechnology in textiles to point the way for further research and innovation

Readership

Researchers and PhD students in materials science with an interest in nanotechnology or textiles. Technicians, engineers, and R&D managers in textile, paints, chemicals and related industries
