Moisture comfort is an essential factor for functional property of thermal cloth, especially for thick thermal cloth, since thick cloth may hinder effective moisture permeation, and high moisture concentration in the micro-climate between skin and fabric would cause cold feeling. Here, we report a biomimic thermal fabric with excellent warm retention and moisture management properties. In this fabric, the warp yarn system constructs many tree-shaped channel nets in the thickness direction of the fabric. Experimental result indicates that the special hierarchic configuration of warp yarns endows the biomimic thermal fabric with a better warm retention and water vapor management properties compared with the traditional fabrics.

The effect of the nanoscale fractal tree-shaped network on the fluid permeation in wool fiber driven by capillary force was investigated in this paper. The fluid permeation obeys murray's law, and the permeation efficiency highly depends on the fractal dimension of the channel length. A better understanding of the mechanism of structural effect on the tree-shaped flow in the nanoscale fractal network of wool fiber could help the further design of bio-mimetic artificial fiber and functional fabric. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

In this study, melt-blown polypropylene (PP) nonwovens were used as substrates for the metallic deposition of copper. The substrates were pretreated by O2 plasma, followed by treatments such as sensitization, activation, and reduction. The effects of the copper sulfate concentration, reaction temperature, and plasma power on the conductivity and adhesion strength of the PP nonwovens were investigated after copper deposition. The morphology of the PP nonwovens after copper deposition, analyzed by scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy, revealed that copper nanoclusters were deposited on the fiber surface with a smooth surface morphology and dense structure. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy indicated that the copper was present mainly in the form of the elementary substance, which coexisted with a little Cu2+ . VC 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
