Special Issue "Textile-Based Advanced Materials: Construction, Properties and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: electrochemical processes; natural colorants; technical and apparel textiles
The field of textiles is not limited only to apparel and fashion, and has applications in many more areas. The sector possesses an array of technologies to physically engineer fibrous materials into structures; to combine disparate materials to create hybrids, composites and blends; and for their chemical treatment. The results find applications in such diverse areas as medicine, physical well-being, sports, smart materials, engineering, energy storage, etc. This Special Issue focuses on such areas. The scope includes methods of construction, chemical processing, property characterizations and validation tests in targeted applications. We welcome both review and experimental articles on the topic.
