Description

Electrospun and Nanofibrous Membranes: Principles and Applications covers the fundamental basic science and many engineering aspects of electrospun membrane technology and nanofibers, membrane design and membrane processes. The book comprehensively reviews a wide range of applications of electrospun membranes, including pressure-driven processes, MD process, batteries, oil-water separation, air filtration, drug delivery, fuel-cells and ion-exchange membranes, as well as antimicrobial membranes. It is written for chemical, polymer and materials engineers, professors and students who are working on membrane-based separation technology and electrospun nanofibers, as well as R&D engineers in industry working in the field of membrane technology and nanofibers.

Discussions of applications cover water and wastewater treatment, desalination, drug delivery and tissue engineering, new generation of batteries, fuel cells, air filtration, and more.

Key Features

  • Comprehensively introduces the principles of electrospinning and electrospun membranes
  • Reviews the different configurations of electrospinning
  • Discusses scale-up strategies for nanofiber production
