Potentialities of Electrospun Polymeric Nanofibres in the Biomedical Field

Electro spinning is a polymer processing technique that uses electrostatic forces to uniaxially stretch a viscoelastic jet derived from a polymer solution or melt, to produce continuous nanometric and micrometric fibres, typically assembled into non-woven mats. It is an old technology and the first patent on the process was awarded in 1934. However, until the early 1990s only few publications dealt with this fabrication technique, and outside of the filtration industry there was little interest in electrospun nanofibres. It was only a couple of decades ago that the technique raised the interest of some research groups, first of all the Reneker’s group at the University of Akron, that contributed to its spreading in research institutes all around the world.
