Nanofiber Manufacture, Properties and Applications


Nanofibers have shown enormous potential in widely diverse applications. However, the technology development for large-scale production of nanofibers has been hampered. We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that promote the development of efficient nanofiber manufacture techniques.

We are interested in articles that explore any aspects of large-scale nanofiber production, theory and quality control, and characterization and functional applications of the nanofibers. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Needleless electrospinning
  • Gas-jacket enhanced electrospinning
  • Bubble electrospinning
  • Centrifuge spinning and centrifuge electrospinning
  • Solution assembly of nanofibers
  • Nanofibers from natural materials
  • Melt-blowing of nanofibers
  • Drawing of nanofibers
  • Other potential large-scale manufacturing techniques
  • Spinning of continuous nanofiber yarns
  • Control of fiber quality and nanofibrous structure
  • Nanofiber mass spinning theory
  • Characterization of nanofibers
  • Functional applications

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at according to the following timetable:
