Improving the functionality of clothing through novel pesticide protection

S.K. Obendorf,     Cornell University,USA

Abstract:

Chemical protection is needed to reduce occupational chemical exposure for individuals involved with mixing, loading and applying pesticide. Protection is provided by chemical protective materials that function by means of barrier (i.e. no permeation or penetration), repellency, or adsorption mechanisms, or a combination of these approaches. Basic mechanisms have been used to define novel approaches for pesticide-protective clothing including microporous and nanofibrous membranes as well as self-decontamination materials based upon N-halamines, metal oxides and polyoxometalates.
