Hydrogel Nanofilaments via Core-Shell Electrospinning
A technique for the production of flexible nanofilaments to be used as drug carriers or in microfluidics, with deformability and elasticity resembling those of long DNA chains, based on the core-shell electrosp spinning technique with core solution polymerisation post electrospinning.
Reactive Magnetospinning of Nano- and Microfibers.
The reactive magnetospinning method is introduced, based on the magnetic-field-directed collision of ferrofluid droplets with liquid droplets that contain complementary reactants, which provides new opportunities for the fabrication of nanofibers for biomedical applications.
Electrospinning Polymer Nanofibers With Controlled Diameters
Rapidly growing needs for large-scale industrial production of polymer nanofibers produced by electrospinning require better control of electrospinning. In this paper, the capability of
Magnetospinning of Nano‐ and Microfibers
The magnetospinning process is independent of the solution dielectric properties and requires no high voltages, in contrast to the more-traditional electrospinning technique.
A Review on Biopolymer-Based Fibers via Electrospinning and Solution Blowing and Their Applications
Electrospinning, for the last few decades, has been extensively acknowledged for its ability to manufacture a macro/nanofibrous architecture from biopolymers, which is otherwise difficult to obtain,
Multi-Nozzle Electrospinning Process to Fabricate Uniform Polymer Nanofiber Mats
In the present study, the multi-nozzle electrospinning process is investigated for the fabrication of uniform polymer nanofiber mats. Electrospinning has been one of the simple and efficient methods
Biomedical Applications of Electrospun Nanofibers: Drug and Nanoparticle Delivery
This review provides a compilation of studies involving the use of electrospun fibers in biomedical applications with emphasis on nanoparticle-impregnated nanofibers.
Controlled electrospinning to produce polymer nanofibers with specified diameters
In this paper, conductivity of the polymer solution, together with concentration and surface tension of thepolymer solution, were adjusted to conduct controlled electrospinning.
