Research Institution

Engineered materials capable of removing chemical-warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) are highly desirable for protective textile applications. TDA is proposing to develop new fabric materials that can self-detoxify CWAs or TICs using metal−organic framework (MOF) materials. TDA Research proposes to develop a new method to granulate the active groups and incorporate them into the textiles without damaging the starting material. In the Phase I project, we will carry out proof-of-concept experiments to demonstrate the viability of the preparing the new materials and coated them onto the fabrics. Fabric samples will be subjected to rigorous testing to assess their performance, as well as processability and endurance. Finally, we will carry out a high-fidelity engineering analysis to estimate the cost of the microspheres and fabrics as a function of production volume.
