Gold, silver nanoparticle dyes give fabrics a rainbow of unexpected colours

Abstract:
Researchers in New Zealand have shown that adding nanoparticles made of pure gold and silver to fine Marino wool can help create a rainbow of unexpected colours, something that may be of interest to high-end, couture fashion designers.




The researchers demonstrated the first scarf dyed with gold nanoparticles at the Nano Science and Technology Institute convention in Boston last week.

"We want to create a fashion icon, like Louis Vutton or Gucci, where the logo will speak for itself," Discovery News quoted James Johnston, the lead researcher from Victoria University in New Zealand, as saying.

"You could say that you are clothed in pure gold or silver," added Johnston.
