Recent Advances in Centrifugal Spinning Preparation of Nanofibers


Article Preview

In recent years, due to the unique advantages of nanomaterials, they are widely used in many fields (including the field of tissue engineering, protective clothing, filters, sensors, etc.). How to prepare nanofibers has become a hot research topic. This paper outlines status quo of a class of preparing nonafibres. And this preparation is the centrifugal spinning including melt centrifugal spinning, centrifugal electrospinning and solution centrifugal spinning, which have broad prospects for development. And this paper also briefly describes theirs advantages and disadvantages. Finally, the development trend of centrifugal spinning is summarized.
