Electrospinning is a simple, but efficient and versatile, technology to produce polymeric nanofibers for widely diverse applications in both textile and non-textile areas. This technique has been shown many advantages such as universality in processing polymeric materials, eases of controlling the fiber diameter and functionalizing nanofibers through adjusting solution composition for electrospinning, and flexibility to generate fibrous membranes of various geometries. Although the novel applications of electrospun nanofibers have been extensively explored, the technology development for mass electrospinning of nanofibers has been hampered.
