New Clothing Material Could Become Personal Cooling Units

People coming in from the heat experience a comfortable feeling in air-conditioned buildings. However, the creation of this comfort comes at a cost to personal expenditure and the environment in the form of greenhouse gas emissions and increased energy bills. Researchers have reported in ACS Nano about the production of a new material for clothing that individuals will one day be able to wear as their own personal cooling unit, without the need for any external energy to power it.
