    • Abstract


      The need for high performance materials for aerospace and other structural engineering applications has led to the development of carbon fibres. At IIT Delhi, an attempt is being made to develop acrylic precursor fibres for manufacturing carbon fibres indigenously. The present study deals with the structural regulation of acrylic precursors during thermo-oxidative stabilization and subsequent carbonization. A new microporous acrylic fibre-acrysorb has also been developed which has high water imbibition and moisture sorption properties. Production of X-ray opaque and antistatic polyester fibres has also been high-lighted.
