Electrospinning is the process of producing nano to micron diameter fibres by applying a high voltage to a polymer solution. These fibres have a greater specific surface area than fibres produced using the traditional spinning method.
Nanofibers are fibres with a diameter between one nanometer and one micrometre, generally. Nanofibers can be produced from a variety of polymers, giving them a range of physical characteristics and possible uses.
Nanofibers are lightweight, have small diameters, controllable pore structures, a high surface-to-volume ratio, and are superior to conventional fibrous structures in a variety of applications, including filtration, sensors, protective clothing, tissue engineering, functional materials, and energy storage.
Long polymeric filaments called nanofibers provide the perfect combination of properties, including high porosity, large surface area, high encapsulation efficiency, tunable shape, and good chemical and thermal stability.
The polymeric raw material may be greatly impacted by the nanofibres’ characteristics.Nanofibers have been produced from a variety of materials using electrospinning.
Organic polymers in solution or melt form are the most often used materials. If small molecules self-assemble and produce enough chain entanglement, they can also be electrospun straight into nanofibers.
The Global Synthetic Nanofiber Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Electrospun Nanofibers of Natural and Synthetic Polymers as Artificial Extracellular Matrix for Tissue Engineering.
As synthetic extracellular matrix, numerous varieties of polymer nanofibers have been introduced. A lot of interest has been drawn because of their tunable characteristics, including wettability, surface charge, transparency, elasticity, porosity, and surface to volume proportion.
Moreover, designing microenvironments to host cells for regenerative medicinal purposes may be made possible by functionalizing polymers with additional bioactive components.
The most recent electrospun nanofibrous polymeric scaffolds are broken down into five main categories: crosslinked polymers, reinforced polymers with inorganic materials, natural polymer-natural polymer composites, natural polymer-synthetic polymer composites, and natural polymer-synthetic polymer composites.
The ability and effectiveness of the nanofibrous scaffolds to serve as the extracellular matrix to support cellular activity is determined by their physicochemical, biological, and mechanical properties.
