In the first two volumes of the "Advances in Nanofibre Research" series, published by Smithers Rapra, it was shown that submicron-sized and nanofibres can be prepared from a polymer solution by means of electrospinning. The third volume of the series describes the many directions in which the science and technology of polymer nanofibres is now evolving, and highlights the current understanding of polymer nanofibres and nanocomposites.
In the third volume, readers can find chapters which compare the occurrence, stability, and functional properties of fibrous nanomaterials of different sizes and shapes.
The new and emerging applications of polymer nanofibres are presented alongside the basic underlying science and technology. With discussions exploring such practical applications as filters, fabrics, scaffolds for tissue engineering, the book provides polymer scientists and engineers with a comprehensive, practical 'how-to' reference work. Among the main aspects covered is the book's presentation of the science and technology of electrospinning, including practical information on how to electrospin different polymer systems.
