Electrospinning: Methods, Applications and perspective!

 | Post date: 2021/07/5 | 
Electrospinning is a versatile and viable technique for generating ultrathin fibers. Remarkable progress has been made with regard to the development of electrospinning methods and engineering of electrospun nanofibers to suit or enable various applications. Electrospinning includes an electrohydrodynamic process, during which a liquid droplet is electrified to generate a jet, followed by stretching and elongation to generate fiber(s).The major components include a high-voltage power supply, a syringe pump, a spinneret, and a conductive collector. The power supply can be either direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC). During electrospinning, the liquid is extruded from the spinneret to produce a pendant droplet as a result of surface tension. Upon electrification, the electrostatic repulsion among the surface charges that feature the same sign deforms the droplet into a Taylor cone, from which a charged jet is ejected. The jet initially extends in a straight line and then undergoes vigorous whipping motions because of bending instabilities.
