Spraying functional fibres by electrospinning

Author affiliations


Electrospinning is a very simple, robust, and versatile technique to process solutions or melts into continuous fibres with diameters down to the nanoscale, which has attracted much attention in both research and commerce. Up to now, a rich variety of electrospun fibres with controllable morphology, alignment and composition have been synthesized, and the materials composed of functional electrospun fibres have already been successfully applied in many technological areas. In particular for anisotropic nanoparticles (NPs), electrospinning shows its powerful capability to assemble them on a large scale. The goal of this brief focus article is to show you how to use the electrospinning technique for preparing the functional fibres you want.
