Nanotechnology is an emerging interdisciplinary technology that has been booming in many areas in the recent decade, such as material science, mechanics, electronics, optics, medicine, plastics, energy, electronics, and aerospace.
The fundamentals of nanotechnology lie in the fact that properties of substances dramatically change when their size is reduced to the nanometer range.
A small amount of nano size species can interfere with matrix polymer that is usually in the similar size range, bringing up the performance of resultant system to an unprecedented level.
Due to its virtues, nanotechnology has attracted large amounts of federal funding, research activity and media attention. Textile industry has already been impacted by nanotechnology.
Researches involving nanotechnology to improve performances or to create unprecedented functions of textile materials are flourishing.
These research endeavors are mainly focused on using nanosize substances and generating nanostructures during manufacturing and finishing processes.
