  • 1. Can Nanotechnology be fashionable? Juan Paulo Hinestroza, Ph.D Associate Professor of Fiber Science Department of Fiber Science & Apparel Design http://nanotextiles.human.cornell.edu
  • 2. Synthesizing NP on cellulose (cotton) can create color on surfaceswithout the use of toxic dyes and efficiently kill bacteria Nanoparticles Cotton Fiber 1 µm___ 200nmA Cornell Fashion Design student, Olivia Ong,created two dresses colored with nanoparticles andcapable of killing 99.9999% bacteriahttp://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/May07/nanofibers.fashion.aj.html
  • 3. Controlling the space between nanoparticles and creating conductivepolymer interconnects allow cotton to conduct electricity and to repeloils and waterA Cornell Design student, Abbey Liebman, createda dress, using the conductive cotton, capable ofcharging an i-phone using solar panels.http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/March10/SolarCoat.html
  • 4. Controlling the functional groups on the surface of cellulose at themolecular level, allow the use of cotton as a scaffold for thesynthesis of novel molecules such as Metal Organic Frameworks A Cornell student, Jen Keane, designed a mask and a hood capable of trapping toxic gases in a selective manner. 2 µm http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/April11/GasGa
  • 5. Metal Organic Frameworks can be tailored to absorb large amounts of active molecules such as insecticides 2 µmA Cornell student from Gambia and a postdoctoral fellowfrom Kenya created a prototype of an anti-malaria mosquitonet with 3 times the capacity for storing and releasinginsecticideshttp://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/April12/RepellantSuit.html
