Unlike metals, non-metallic electro-conductive textiles are polymeric, flexible, durable, moldable, and light weight. A brilliant quality of these textiles is the capability to alter conductivity through various external stimuli (e.g., strain, torsion, pH, humidity) to suit a specific application such as sensors, heating garments, EMI shielding, energy harvesting devices, wearable electronics and more.Based on these concepts, the title has been structured into three main sections. Section I contains chapters discussing the various preparation methods of electro-conductive textiles, Section II contains chapters on their characteristics and features and Section III details the end-use applications and sustainability of these textiles.

Homogeneous Oxidation Reactions, a volume in the Advances Homogeneous in Catalysis series, covers oxidation and hydrogenation reactions in detail. Split into two sections, the first is devoted to various homogeneous oxidation processes, such as oxidation of olefins, phenols, and aromatic acids. The second presents homogeneous hydrogenation reactions and related processes, including hydrogenation of alkenes, esters, and olefins. Relevant reactor design, industrial case studies, economic analysis and environmental issues of both oxidation and hydrogenation homogeneous reactions are considered. This book will be of particular interest and benefit to catalysts users, manufacturers, and creators.
Advanced Textile Structural Composites Forming: Characterisation, Modelling, and Simulation comprehensively describes the influence of fiber/fabric architectures and properties on composites forming, along with their deformability and structural optimization, covering the latest advances in the composites forming field. Part one reviews textile reinforcement architectures and discusses the forming behaviors of important 2D and 3D fabrics. Part two discusses numerical models to conduct simulation analysis of different structural composites forming at mesoscopic and macroscopic scales, in particular, 3D preforms with through-the-thickness yarns.Part three looks at the latest developments in the relationship between forming and other steps in composite manufacturing, such as resin injection, and automated fiber placement (AFP) and the effects on certain mechanical properties, such as structural damage and impact resistance. The book will be an essential reference for academic researchers, industrial engineers and materials scientists working with the manufacture and design of fiber-reinforced composite materials.
