Engineering - Material Science & Metallurgy
- Provides an overview of the synergy between electrochemistry and textiles
- Presents the material in a manner that non-electrochemists and non-textile specialists can understand
- Brings together knowledge from both fields to explore the possibilities of electrochemistry for textiles
Providing an overview of the synergy between the fields of electrochemistry and textiles, this book shows the possibilities and innovative character of electrochemistry for textiles. It begins with an overview of the theory of electrochemistry as well as practical considerations. The second part covers the development of sensors for the optimization and automation of textile finishing processes and the third part discusses textile electrodes used in a wide variety of applications and quality control methods. The fourth part explores the functionalization of fibers through chemical and electrochemical modification and some applications are give for these types of textile related electrodes.
