Micro and nanoscale fiber technologies have changed the practices in various engineering fields. These technologies have merged with advanced materials to enable engineering constructs, which improve the mechanical, thermal, electrical, and physicochemical features of resulting materials. Hitherto, various fiber forming technologies have enabled engineers and scientists to move to the next stage in their achievement with accompanying numerous theoretical and experimental studies on developed fibers. In particular, one of these fiber-forming techniques, the electrospinning method, has emerged as a promising platform in multidisciplinary engineering over the past few decades. This facile and cost-effective approach has overcome major challenges and has achieved remarkable breakthroughs in energy, environmental, and biomedical applications. Furthermore, a compatibility of the electrospinning method with other processes and materials has enabled this method to be continuously explored in both academy and industry to develop next-generation products.
This Special Issue aims to provide and highlight current research progresses on functional electrospun nanofibers for energy, environmental, and biomedical applications, which will be of great value for those who are exploring advanced materials to reach a new pinnacle of technology.

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. Polymers 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 1800 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.
