Nanofibers are defined as fibers with diameters less than 100 nanometers. In the textile industry, this definition is often extended to include fibers as large as 1000 nm diameter. They can be produced by melt processing, interfacial polymerization, electrospinning, antisolvent-induced polymer precipitation and electrostatic spinning. Nanofibers have applications in medicine, including artificial organ components, tissue engineering, implant material, drug delivery, wound dressing, and medical textile materials. Book Advances in Nanofibers covers topics on developments within the Nanofibers field of study. This book summarizes the currently available techniques for nanofiber synthesis and discusses the use of nanofibers in tissue engineering and drug delivery applications.
