Advances in Electrically Conductive Textiles: Materials, Characterization, and Applications covers non-metallic electro-conductive textiles that are known for being 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, and more. Based on these concepts, this book has been structured into three main sections that discuss the various preparation methods of electro-conductive textiles, their characteristics and features, and end-use applications and sustainability.
