Volume . Electrospinning: Nanofabrication and Applications

Published: 1st March 2019 Editors: Bin Ding Xianfeng Wang Jianyong Yu

Electrospinning is an extremely versatile nanofabrication technique for fabricating ultrathin fibrous materials with controllable compositions and structures. This is achieved by applying a high voltage to a polymer solution or melt. Electrospun nanofibers, with a large surface area, high porosity, good connectivity, fine flexibility, and ease of scalable synthesis, hold great potential for many emerging applications. Electrospinning: Nanofabrication and Applications presents an overview of the electrospinning technique, nanofabrication strategies, and potential applications.

The book opens with an introduction to the fundamentals of electrospinning. Chapters go on to discuss fundamental principles of the electrospinning process, controlling parameters, materials and structures. Part Two focuses specifically on various nanofabrication strategies where electrospinning is used, including coaxial electrospinning, multi-needle electrospinning, needleless electrospinning, electro-netting, near-field electrospinning, and three-dimensional macrostructure assembling. Part Three explores the applications of electrospun nanofibres in different fields and concludes with the future prospects of this efficient technology.

This is a valuable reference for engineers and materials scientist working with fibrous materials and textiles, as well as researchers in the areas of nanotechnology, electrospinning, nanofibers, and textiles.
