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 […]

Parsons Group @ NanoDays 2016

NanoDays 2016 took NC State’s Centennial Campus by storm, with hundreds of students eager to learn more about science and engineering. The Parsons group had some fun and interesting tabletop science demonstrations for middle and high school students (who came from all over the Triangle area). James used a lemon battery and some tungsten coated fibers […]
