Abstract

Nanometer diameter fibers are finding a wide variety of applications for composite materials, catalysis, filtration and as a multifunctional support in biomedicine. The most common method for making nanofibers uses electrospinning, which utilizes large voltages and is strongly influenced by the dielectric properties of the material. Here we describe two new methods, which utilize a simple set-up that is independent of the dielectric constant of the solvent and polymer used.
