In this work, functional textile was fabricated through silver/reduced graphene oxide composites coated on polyester fabric after bovine serum albumin functionalization. The fabric not only possesses low electrical resistance of 1.6 Ω, but also exhibits excellent EMI shielding effectiveness of 54.4 dB. In addition, the fabric funcionalized with bovine serum albumin remains good performances after heating, bending and washing tests. Furthermore, the fabric keeps the pliability, good handle and lightweight of the fabric, indicating that the silver/reduced graphene oxide coated fabric could be considered as a wearable electronic device with highly efficient EMI shielding performance.
