Rapra Publishing has announced the release of Advances in Nanofibre
Nanofibres are defined as fibres with diameters on the order of 100
nanometres. They can be produced by interfacial polymerisation and
electrospinning. Nanofibres are included in garments, insulation and in energy
storage. They are also used in medical applications, which include drug and gene
delivery, artificial blood vessels, artificial organs and medical facemasks.
This book presents some fascinating phenomena associated with the remarkable
features of nanofibres in electrospinning processes and new progress in
applications of electrospun nanofibres.
It also provides an overview of structure-property relationships, synthesis
and purification, and potential applications of electrospun nanofibres. The
collection of topics in this book aims to reflect the diversity of recent
advances in electrospun nanofibres with a broad perspective which may be useful
for scientists as well as for graduate students and engineers.
