Abstract: Auxetic materials are a kind of non-conventional materials having negative Poisson's ratio. They laterally expand when stretched or laterally shrink when compressed. Compared to conventional materials, auxetic materials have a number of enhanced properties that could be very interesting for some special applications. This paper reviews the latest achievements in auxetic materials, including their properties, structures and applications. A special discussion on their potential applications in textiles is also made. It is expected that this review could provide some useful information for the future development of auxetic textile materials.
