Functional Nanofibers and Nanostructures
In this project we will design and develop functional nanofibers and nanostuctures utilising electrospinning for various applications such as: (i) for various nanobiomedical utilizations (tissue engineering, wound healing, drug delivery, biodiagnostics), (ii) for environmental protection applications (nanosensors, nanofiltering, nanomembranes), (iii) for electronic production technology (conductive nanostructures) and (iv) for nanocomposite applications, among other.

Additional details regarding Electospun Functional Nano- fibers and Nano- structures (micro- nanoprocessing of polymers):
Nanofibers are an exciting new class of functional nano materials that can be used in various nanotechnological applications. Due to the nanometer diameter of the fiber, the very high surface area per unit mass, the very small pore size, their tunable surface properties, and many other unique characteristics, nanofibers are an interesting material for new nanostructural applications.
The electrospinning process generates polymeric nanofibers that form a porous matrix. During electrospinning, a high voltage is applied between a drop of polymer solution and a target plate. Nanofibers are formed from the polymer jet when it becomes narrowed by an increasing surface charge density, which in turn results from solvent evaporation. This electrostatic process allows continuous production of fibers ranging from a few nanometers to over 1 micro in diameter, and it can be used to prepare nanofibers from a wide range of biopolymer and polymer materials.
