Abstract

Polymer nanofibers are an important category of nanoscale materials that are designed to attain a high surface-area-to-weight ratio, opening new opportunities for advanced water, energy, and health-care applications. Among these materials, nanofibrous membranes can be designed for environmental, biomedical, and electrochemical applications owing to their large specific surface area, high porosity, and small pores. Electrospinning has widely been used to efficiently fabricate nanofibrous membranes with controllable porosity and fluid permeability. To engineer the properties of electrospun nanofibrous membranes (ENMs), coaxial electrospinning has been used to manufacture core-shell structures in a controllable and effective manner. This chapter provides an overview of the principles of coaxial electrospinning, its engineering parameters, and various structures fabricated using this technique. In addition, applications of ENMs and future perspectives are discussed.
