Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Continuing the Special Issue “Electrospinning Technologies for Biomedical and Biotechnological Applications”, we are pleased to open a new Special Issue, “Electrospinning Technologies for Biomedical and Biotechnological Applications—Volume II”. This new Special Issue is motivated by the observed growing interest in the design, fabrication, and application of electrospun nanofiber materials in the fields of biomedicine and biotechnology. It aims to provide broad coverage of the research progress, as well as up-to-date reviews addressing the various fundamental and applied problems of using electrospinning techniques for multiple bio-applications.

In this Special Issue, we seek contributions from active experts discussing the improvements in electrospinning technologies, and innovations in electrospun biomaterials, including applications in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, wound healing, drug and gene delivery, filtration, and enzyme supports, among others. We intend for this Special Issue to provide a unique platform for the diffusion of new concepts and bio-applications of electrospun nonwoven materials, so as to continue the motivation and inspiration for further research in this newly invigorated field.

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Abstract: Currently, new materials based on green electrospun nanofiber materials were widely used in biomedicine and biotechnology. The reason for this is that these materials are biocompatible, biodegradable, antibacterial and non-toxic. These types of green materials are top materials in antibacterial coatings, genetic and cell engineering, wound dressings, tissue engineering scaffolds, drug delivery and release. The green electrospun nanofiber materials have good multifunctional properties, such as porosity, high surface area and good surface characteristics. In this review, the recent trends, basic properties, and biomedical and biotechnological applications of green electrospun nanofiber materials were discussed and reviewed.

Title: The effect of ozone on the structure and properties of nonwoven electrospun materials based on PHB and Hemin
Authors: Olkhov A.A., Tyubaeva P.M., Zernova Yu.N., Popov A.A., Iordanskii A.L.
Affiliation: Higher School of Engineering, Plekhanov Russian University of Economics, 36 Stremyanny Ln, Moscow 117997, Russia
Abstract: The paper will consider the features of obtaining fibers from poly-3-hydroxybutyrate biopolymer with the introduction of small concentrations of a modifying additive by electrospinning method. The main attention will be paid to ozone treatment of the obtained materials. The paper considers aspects of the influence of the oxidizer on the structure and properties of the polymer.

Abstract: Composite materials consist of two or more components with different physical and chemical properties. The composite consists of a matrix and one or more fillers. By changing the composition, structure, ratio of matrix and filler, it is possible to design composites with a given set of characteristics. The use of composites removes the material load, increases the performance and service life of the material or product. This article will show some results of researchers from the Institute of Combustion Problems on the creation of new types of composite materials by electrospinning. In particular, the results of obtaining composite fibers using materials from plant waste, magnetic fibers and composite fibers for gas sensors will be presented. It will be shown that the use of activated carbon and silica nanoparticles obtained from rice husk improves the sorption characteristics of PAN-based composite fibers. The production of new composite fibers based on PAN and semiconductor metal oxide nanoparticles will also be shown, and their gas-sensitive characteristics with respect to toxic gases will be studied.
