Scientists from Shanghai-based Donghua University developed an assembly strategy to create a biomimetic nanofibrous membrane with ultrafast evaporation and quick-dry performance.

It exhibits an outstanding water evaporation rate, 2.1 times that of Coolmax fabric, a popular moisture-wicking fabric currently on the market.

The research serves as a source of inspiration for the development of high-performance moisture-wicking fabric.
