Carbon nanotubes make clothes conduct electricity

Abstract:
Stanford University researchers have discovered a way to turn cotton fabrics into supercapacitors, energy storage devices similar to a battery.

A team led by materials science professor Yi Cui, incorporated single-walled carbon nanotubes into textiles using a technique usually used for dyeing. To create the nanotube dye, carbon nanotubes are dispersed in water with sodium dodecylbenzenesulphonate as a surfactant. The fabric sample is dipped into this mixture before being dried at 120°C for ten minutes.

"We are always interested in combining high-tech nanotechnology with low-tech industry, which motivates us to develop textile and paper batteries. Textile energy storage devices can be used for wearable electronics," Cui tells tce. "The next step will be demonstrating how to integrate these devices into real clothes."
