Fibrous materials and assemblies of fibers are widely used in various engineering fields and have demonstrated promising features for a variety of applications including smart textiles, composite materials, biomedical use, and so on. Conductive fibrous materials are used in electronic textiles (E-Textile) for wearable devices, including strain/pressure sensing fabrics, fabric-based supercapacitor, and fabric optoelectronic. Surface modification strategies are also attempted to endow fibers with diverse properties (e.g. antibacterial, UV-blocking, superhydrophobic/ superhydrophilic, antistatic, and fire-resistant features). Fibrous materials exhibit interesting features after being converted into micro-nano scale related to porous structures and high specific surface area. Furthermore, the unique properties of a single fiber and the three-dimensional structure of fabric need to be discussed to understand the behavior of fibrous materials.

The aim of this Research Topic is to introduce the latest development of functional fibrous materials (e.g. natural fiber, nanofiber, short fiber, high-performance fiber, carbon fiber or inorganic fiber), and the impact of fiber-based functional materials in the development of greener processing and advanced performance. This research topic welcomes the submission of original research, state-of-the-art review, and perspectives on the latest developments in the functional fibrous materials. Suggested contributions may include, but not limited to:

(a) Design and preparation of functional fiber/fabric
(b) Novel application based on fibrous materials
(c) Micro-nano scale fibers
(d) Advanced electrospinning nanofibers/ wet spinning fibers
(e) Carbon fiber and composite
(f) Green natural fibers: green processing of natural fibers (wool, cotton, hemp)
(g) New insights into the fibrous materials


Keywords: Fiber, Synthesis, Smart textile, Wearable electronics, Biomedical, Green processing, Bio-mimicking
