Fabric Breaks Down Chemical Warfare Agents: Research highlighted in IEEE GlobalSpec

Researchers have created a fabric material containing nanoscale fibers that are capable of degrading chemical warfare agents (CWAs). Scientists from North Carolina State University (NCSU), RTI International and the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center synthesized uniform coatings of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) on top of the nanofibers to form unique “kebab-like” structures. These MOFs break down the […]
