Research in self-cleaning, sunproof silk progresses

February 25th, 2019

To give silk hydrophobic and UV-blocking properties, researchers from Wuhan Textile University have experimented with in-situ synthesis of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods on fabrics made of natural silk. A Materials Today article says that the team’s report, which appeared in Materials Letters, says they’ve produced super-hydrophobic silk without the addition of seed particles or the […]
