Summary of "A Multifunctional Smart Textile Derived from Merino Wool/Nylon Polymer Nanocomposites as Next Generation Microwave Absorber and Soft Touch Sensor."

In recent times e-textiles have emerged as wonder safeguards due to the great potential background in space, military, healthcare, or portable electronics. As a result, widespread research and development have been done to made significant advancement in this field, but it still remains a key challenge to use one single product with multifunctional attributes with the past performed key characteristics. In this work, phase separated
PEDOT:
PSS ornamented with reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nano-sheets, deposited on the newly fabricated ultra-lightweight, super-hydrophobic, and mechanically enriched merino wool/nylon (W-N) composite textile followed by the dipping and drying strategy. The open edges-layered structure of rGO helping uniform deposition of PEDOTs clusters, which allows to form stacked layer of PEDOTs~~rGO /PEDOTs~~PEDOTs for robust 3D electrical transforming channel network within the W-N textile surface. These dip-coated multifunctional textiles show high electrical conductivities up to 90.5 S cm in conjugated with flexible electromagnetic interference shielding efficiency of 73.8 dB (in X band) and in-plane thermal conductivity of 0.81 W/mK with a minimum thickness of 0.84 mm. This thin coating maintained the hydrophobicity (water contact angle of ~150) and leading to an excellent EM protective cloth combined with real-life antenna performance under high mechanical or chemical tolerance. Interestingly, this multiuse textile can also act as an exceptional TASER Proof Textiles (TPT) due to short out the electrical shock coming from the TASER by its unique conducting network architecture. Remarkably, this coated textile can get a response by the soft touch to lighten up the household bulb and could establish wireless communication via HC-05 Bluetooth module as a textile-based touch switch. This developed fabric could perform as a new potentially scalable single product in intelligent smart garments, portable next-generation electronics, and the growing threat of EM pollution.
