This new book, Electrospinning of Nanofibers in Textiles, presents important new research in the dynamic and emerging field of electrospinning and covers all aspects of the technology as used to produce nanofibers.

Electrospinning of nanofibers is an emerging technology of manufacturing of thin natural fibers that is based on the principle of the electrospinning process. In conventional fiber spinning, the mechanical force is applied to the end of a jet, whereas in the electrospinning process, the electric body force acts on elements of charged fluid. Electrospinning of nanofibers has emerged as a specialized processing technique for the formation of sub-micron fibers, with high specific surface areas.

Electrospinning of natural fibers offers an economical and simple method to prepare polymer fibers and provides an abundance of unique capabilities for producing novel natural nanofibers and fabrics with controllable pore structure.
