Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We usually define nanofibers as fibers with diameters of less than 100 nanometers. These nanofibers have a very large surface-to-volume ratio and have become an exciting new material that can be used in many applications requiring high porosity, such as energy storage, healthcare, environmental engineering, biotechnology, and information technology.

To fabricate submicron polymeric nanofibers, a number of processing techniques, such as electrospinning, multi-component spinning, melt-blowing, flash spinning, template synthesis, self-assembly, and nanolithography, have been demonstrated. The effectiveness of these techniques is determined by the overall consideration of applicable polymers, attainable fiber assembly, production rate, and production cost. Among these techniques, electrospinning is an extraordinary, versatile process that can create nanofibers from a very wide range of polymeric materials. The practicality of electrospinning has been greatly improved with recent advances in mass production scalability, leading to higher production rates and lower-cost materials.

This Special Issue “Electrospun Nanofiber Membranes - Preparation and Application” covers the design, preparation, and characterization of electrospun nanofiber membranes materials, as well as their applications in different areas, etc. This Special Issue welcomes contributions on (but not limited to):

  • Advanced application of electrospun nanofiber membranes in wastewater treatment;
  • Electrospun nanofiber membranes applied for air firtration;
  • Electrospun nanofiber membranes applied for flexible electronic materials;
  • Electrospun nanofiber membranes applied for biomedical application;
  • Removal of bacterial pathogens using electrospun nanofiber membranes;
  • Electrospun nanofiber membranes as ultrathin flexible supercapacitors.

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. Membranes 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 2700 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.
