Stable dispersions of nanofibers are virtually unknown for synthetic polymers. They can complement analogous dispersions of inorganic components, such as nanoparticles, nanowires, nanosheets, etc. as a fundamental component of a toolset for design of nanostructures and metamaterials via numerous solvent-based processing methods. As such, strong flexible(More)

Nanoscale polymeric fibers are expected to bring about exceptional mechanical and optical properties in composite materials related to the better integration of different properties between fibers and polymers. The discovery of the first aramid nanofiber dispersion from commercial para-aramid macrofibers similar to Kevlar developed by DuPont allowed the(More)
