    by CRC Press

    Nanofibers are possible solutions for a wide spectrum of research and commercial applications and utilizing inexpensive bio-renewable and agro waste materials to produce nanofibers can lower manufacturing cost via electrospinning. This book explains synthesis of green, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly nanofibers from bioresources, their mechanical and morphological characteristics along with their applications across varied areas. It gives an elaborate idea on conductive polymers for tissue engineering application as well.


    • Provides insight about electrospun nanofibers from green, biodegradable and environmentally friendly bio resources.
    • Reviews surface characterization of electrospun fibers.
    • Covers diversified applications such as cancer treatment, COVID-19 solutions, food packaging applications, textile materials, and flexible electronic devices.
    • Describes the combined use of 3D printing and electrospinning for tissue engineering scaffolds.
    • Includes Melt electrospinning technique and its advantages over Solution electrospinning

    This book aims at Researchers and Graduate Students in Material Science and Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering.
