About the Authors
  • Presenting the latest coverage of the fundamentals and applications of nanofibrous materials and their structures for graduate students and researchers, this book bridges the communication gap between fiber technologists and materials scientists and engineers. Featuring intensive coverage of electroactive, bioactive and structural nanofibers, it provides a comprehensive collection of processing conditions for electrospinning and includes recent advances in nanoparticle-/nanotube-based nanofibers. The book also covers mechanical properties of fibers and fibrous assemblies, as well as characterisation methods.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "An in-depth explanation of the basic properties of polymers helps the reader to refresh knowledge acquired during university courses, and is a very good introduction to further content, especially various methods of fiber formation, with understandable and clear schematics which are essential to fully understand nanofiber formation and their advantages and limits … The principles of every method described in the book are also explained in a very approachable way. Characterization methods are presented in accordance with recent research, which shows the reader how to apply those methods in the laboratory and how to interpret the results … I would recommend this book for students and researchers of various fields interested in the electrospinning process and nanotechnology research. This publication is valuable and comprehensive and will guide the reader through all steps of the creation, application and characterization of nanofiber materials."
