Using Electrospun Nanofibers for Pharmaceutical Applications

Electrospun nanofiber matrices display morphological similarities to the natural ECM, characterized by high surface-to-volume ratio, ultra fine continuous fibers, variable pore-size distribution similar to the dimensions of basement membranes, and high porosity. As a result, there has been remarkable effort to develop new applications based on materials created using electrostatic processes in the pharmaceutical and … Continue reading

Difference Between ElectroSpinning and ElectroSpraying

Electrospraying and electrospinning are both electrohydrodynamic mechanisms which are used for the fabrication of nano/microparticles and nano/microfibers. Fundamentals of Both the Processes The electrostatic force is applied to produce electrically charged jets out of viscoelastic polymer solutions. Solvent is evaporated in time and nano-micro structures are obtained once the process is complete. Concentration of the polymer … Continue reading
