Abstract: The electrospun nanofibers are able to form a highly porous mesh and the large surface-to-volume ratio improves performance for many applications. The nanofibers can be used in a variety of applications such as energy storage, healthcare, biotechnology, environmental engineering, and defense and security. The latest medical practice is based entirely on treatment regimes. High porosity, interconnectivity, microscale interstitial space, and a large surface-to-volume ratio mean that nonwoven electrospun nanofiber meshes are an excellent material for membrane preparation. Electrospinning may be able to produce microengineered scaffolds for tissue engineering.
