Electrospun Polymer Nanomaterials: Preparation, Characterization, and Application

Description

Electrospinning is an effective technology for production of nanostructured functional materials. A large amount of polymers have been electrospun to obtain nanomaterials for numerous potential applications including medical areas (such as tissue engineering and drug delivery) and energy conversion (such as lithium batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells). These materials may not only contain small functional molecules but also exhibit hierarchical nanostructure. Surface modification on electrospun nanomaterials has also emerging for the novel applications. This special issue is an attempt to promote more and more new functional materials to play an increasing role in electrospinning technologies for sustainable development. We invite authors to submit original research and review articles in the field of electrospinning of polymer. We are interested in articles that make this process very attractive and therefore open up new commercial markets for diverse applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Theoretical and experimental research on electrospun polymer nanomaterials
  • Fabrication and characterization of electrospun polymer nanomaterials
  • Modification of electrospun materials and its applications
  • Development of electrospun technology
  • Influence of the properties of solutions on the phase
  • Microstructure and morphology of the resulting electrospun fibers
  • Advance in complicated configurations and hierarchical structures of electrospun materials
  • Improvements and multiple extensions made to technical spinning devices

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jnm/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/jnm/elec/ according to the following timetable:
