    1. Space environments pose huge challenges to the performance of functional materials.

      A bioinspired EMI shielding coating for extreme conditions is developed.

      The coating exhibits broad applicability and excellent constructability.

      Stable Joule heating performance is also achieved for low temperature insulation.

      Maintain high performance under UV, atomic oxygen corrosion, and thermal shock.

  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials are vitally important for electronics and spacecrafts operating in space environment. However, how to achieve high EMI shielding performance with good adaptability for various application scenarios and high tolerance to extreme conditions remains a huge challenge. Here, we report a bioinspired EMI shielding coating material with high EMI shielding performance (~100 dB) and wide applicability for multiple applications. Through modulating the multiple interactions among the coating components of cellulose nanofiber (CNF), carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and polydopamine (PDA), such a coating material can adhere to both macro and micro substrates through various coating methods including brush coating, spray coating and dip coating, to provide both comprehensive EMI shielding and Joule heating properties. More importantly, the coating can maintain high EMI shielding performance under the impact of atomic oxygen, ultraviolet light, and rapid thermal shock (from −196 °C to 200 °C), showing great potential in EMI shielding for practical applications in extreme conditions, especially for the exploration of space.
