Special Issue in Materials: Personal Protective Materials (PPMs) re COVID-19
This is a highly focused special journal issue dedicated to novel SMART textiles which aims to promote this life-changing discipline by providing a platform for dissemination, networking, discussion, and debate. The sensing/adapting/responding, multi-functionality, low energy, small size and weight, ease of forming, and low-cost attributes of SMART Textiles and their multidisciplinary scope offer numerous end uses in medical, sports and fitness, military, fashion, automotive, aerospace, built environment, and energy industries. The quest for these new and high-value materials crosses scientific boundaries, redefines material science, design, and engineering, and finds new uses. As such, SMART textiles are particularly important to quality of life and in sustaining energy and our environment.
I invite the community to support Materials (IF 2.654) in this timely initiative by submitting new and ground-breaking papers that will constitute the roadmap of our future research.
Prof. Dr. George K. Stylios
