Because of the advantageously high surface-to-volume ratio at the nanometer-scale, highly functionalized aramid building blocks are achieved in the form of nanofibers and nanosheets, both of which can form complex nanostructures with tailorable macroscopic properties through treatment using phosphoric acid and glutaraldehyde. An aramid nanofiber network is formed from functionalized Kevlar nanofiber building blocks by the chemical treatment.
