Global experts at Colombo textile conference

Abstract:
At the 84th Textile Institute World Conference held in North Carolina, USA, a breakthrough by Eugene Smit, a PhD student in Polymer Science at the Department of Chemistry and Polymer Science of Stellenbosch University, was presented which pointed to the likelihood that nanotechnology will provide people with multifunctional clothes that keep them warm while also acting as a warning system against air or water pollution. The days of wearing clothes that only provide protection against the elements seem to be numbered - thanks to nanotechnology that is.
