    Electrospinning is a versatile method to synthesize fiber materials. Electrospun Nanofibres: Materials, Methods, and Applications explores the technical aspects of electrospinning methods used to derive a wide range of functional fiber materials and their applications in various technical sectors. As electrospinning is a process that can be modified strategically to achieve different fibers of interest, this book covers the wide spectrum of electrospinning methodologies, such as coaxial, triaxial, emulsion, suspension, electrolyte and gas-assisted spinning processes. It:

    • Discusses a broad range of materials, including synthetic polymers, biodegradable polymers, metals and their oxides, hybrid materials, nonpolymers, and more
    • Reviews different electrospinning methods and combined technologies
    • Describes process-related parameters and their influence on material properties and performance
    • Examines modeling of the electrospinning process
    • Highlights applications across different industries

    This book is aimed at researchers, professionals, and advanced students in materials science and engineering.
