Abstract

Electrospinning process is a fairly well established experimental method to produce submicron fibers. Fiber diameters are usually in the range of 100-500 nm that enable them to find out applications as filters, protective fabric liners, face masks, etc. More recently, adding functionality to nanofibers has gained increased attention from the research community. This review paper reports the state-of-the-art research on functionalized nanofibers and their fabrication, characteristics and high-end applications in chemical process industries, chemical protective clothing, biomaterials, drug delivery and tissue engineering.
