About the book

Nanofibers are fibers with diameters in the range of nanometer which can be generated from different polymers. Nanofibers are fabricated by different techniques such as electrospinning, self-assembly, template-assisted synthesis, and thermal-induced phase separation. They have different physical and chemical properties with potential applications in various fields. The recent applications of nanofibers have greatly influenced many fields, including material science, engineering, chemistry, environmental, and medical sciences.

This book aims to present an overview of the current status of nanofibers, fabrication and recent trends in the fabrication of nanofibers, and functional nanofibers and applications of nanofibers in various fields including environmental, bio-sensing, drug delivery, catalysis, and medical. The book hopes to provide a piece of up-to-date information about the mentioned topics and fundamental knowledge necessary for the advanced study in the field of nanofibers and their applications, making it interesting to research students, scientists, engineers, and material scientists.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Karla Skuliber

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.
