About the book

The evolution of virtually all fields of science and industry is inextricably linked with access to modern functional materials with special physical properties. The development of material technologies based on efficiency, economy and environmental impact is also of great importance. In view of the challenges of the future in the field of sustainable industrial development, it is necessary to constantly search for materials that enable the implementation of the designers' assumptions. One of the most promising directions for the materials engineering based on materials with special properties (electrical, optical, mechanical, chemical) is the nano-scale operation. The famous saying of prof. Richard Feynman "There's Plenty of Space at the Bottom" is a great illustration of the possibilities of nanotechnology. In the case of nano-structured materials, the reduction to the nano-scale size results in a complete change of physical properties, eg.mechanical, electrical, and causes known materials to be somehow rediscovered.

Therefore, the aim of the presented work is to briefly describe the latest research on one of the most interesting directions of material nanoengineering. The use of the modern technique of producing nanostructures, which is electrospinning, allows to obtain one-dimensional nanometric structures, both organic and inorganic, in a fast, economical process with low environmental impact. The work contains information on the basics of technology and detailed descriptions of individual parameters along with their influence on the structure and properties of the obtained materials. As shown by the available research, the perspective use of one-dimensional materials is extremely wide, it includes, among others, automotive, electronics, optics, medicine, environmental protection. Hence the necessity to collect and catalog the available information in a compact form of the presented book. In addition, the book will describe the prospects for the future development of electrospun materials with regard to applications.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Andrea Tomurad

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
