Electrospinning is an easy and versatile technique to produce organic and inorganic fibers with average diameters ranging from a few nanometers up to a few micrometers. The ability to tune the fiber diameter allows control of the material surface area, as well as surface functionality, ultimately leading to a superior mechanical property of this materials. This Special Issue focuses on the latest developments and findings on electrospun materials for a wide range of applications, e.g., biomedical, bio-interfaces, wastewater management, oil spills, air pollution control, energy harvesting, and storage.
We are pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for the Special Issue on “Electrospun Materials” in the form of full research papers, communications, and review articles. We look forward to your contribution to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
