Abstract: Melt electrospinning is a technique for the production of micro and nanofibers which can be an interesting alternative to conventional solvent electrospinning. In this process, the solvents are replaced by polymer melts. Despite its greater potential, the number of papers published and research groups working in the application of melt electrospinning for novel applications is significantly lower than that of solvent electrospinning. However, it is worth mentioning that attempts were made to improve the design and development of melt electrospinning and fabricate fibrous materials using the set up during the last few decades. A lack of interest in melt electrospinning is probably associated with the difficulty of melting the polymers at a precise temperature range. This report provides an overview on the various design setups employed to achieve melt electrospinning and a wide variety of polymers used. Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
