Colorado Public Radio's Ryan Warner recently interviewed Rich Noble on the ionic liquid-based fabrics being developed by his and Doug Gin's groups. The pair have been contracted by the Pentagon to develop lightweight hazmat suits to protect against chemical weapons. Another application of their research is a coating to spray onto contaminated surfaces which can subsequently be peeled off.
