This Special Issue of Materials concentrates on novel technologies and applications in the range of electrospun nanofibers and nanofiber mats. Electrospinning enables the creation of fibers in the sub-micrometer range, i.e. with a high surface-to-volume ratio, allowing us to apply them in biotechnology, for medical and filter applications, etc. On the other hand, such nanofibers are known to have low defect rates, making them useful in material investigations. Recently, new needleless electrospinning technologies are being established, aiming at higher productivity and thus bringing these materials nearer to commercial applications on larger scales. On the other hand, new materials and material blends are being investigated to further broaden the spectrum of possible applications. Finally, the area of "green electrospinning" is gaining more and more interest, reducing and preferably avoiding hazardous solvents. We would like to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Electrospinning: Nanofabrication and Application”. Here we will underline recent advances related to technology, materials science and basic research for diverse applications.Research topics of interest may include, but are not limited to new needleless electrospinning techniques; new applications of electrospun nanofiber mats, new materials and material blends used for electrospinning, tailoring physical and chemical properties of electrospun nanofiber mats, generally new ideas about electrospinning.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2300 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.
