Abstract:

We report on progress made in year 2 of WP21-3053 on the development of novel multifunctional fibers for the controlled delivery ofenvironmentally friendly, low toxicity insect repellents encapsulated in the core of polymer fibers via electrospinning and dry jet wet spinning todemonstrate feasibility for transition. Individual fibers were engineered by electrospinning, as well as scalable extrusion methods, to exhibit oneor more functionalities providing multiple approaches to produce yarn and/or fabric composites for environmentally sustainable multifunctionaltextiles.
