DID YOU KNOW...?

...that nylon could one day be a building block for transparent electronic devices?

Some types of nylon exhibit "ferroelectric properties", meaning that "positive and negative electric charges can be separated and this state can be maintained." In other words, they'd be extremely useful for electronic components like capacitors, transistors and diodes.

However, nylon hadn't been able to be used in this manner, because no one had figured out how to create thin, flexible films of it through solution processing.

But now, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research and Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, along with researchers from Lodz University of Technology, have managed to create super thin films by "dissolving nylon in a mixture of trifluoroacetic acid and acetone and solidifying it again in vacuum".

Eventually, this could lead to technologies such as clothing that can generate electricity from the movement of our bodies!
