Functional smart textiles using stimuli-sensitive polymers

A.K. Agrawal and M. Jassal,     Indian Institute of Technology, India

Abstract:

Immense interest has been shown in polymeric systems exhibiting stimuli-sensitive properties due to their wide range of applications. This chapter discusses the general features of stimulisensitive polymers. It also introduces the basic chemistry of synthesis of temperature-and pH-responsive polymers. Then, the chapter reviews the different techniques suitable for producing smart textiles using stimuliresponsive polymers. The response of these polymers can be enhanced by integrating to textiles or by conversion to stable, strong thin shapes.
