Design and preparation of controllable thermal management textiles using functional metal oxides

posted on 2021-05-06, 05:56 authored by LINGHUI PENG
This doctoral work aims to develop highly efficient thermal radiation management textiles. A facile and one-pot hydrothermal method is used to synthesize functional material-vanadium oxides with 0D, 1D, 2D & 3D morphologies. Special structures of VO2 and silver composites have been successfully designed for smart thermal management textiles with strong IR modulating ability and other functions. For industrial engineering, a scalable manufactured IR shielding CsxWO3 nanosheet-coated cotton fabric with self-cleaning property has been also designed. The designs and results in this thesis work offer useful guidance for future investigation of smart thermal management textiles.
