Nanofibers: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications


Wei Dong Li (Editor)
Xue Ping Wang (Editor)

Series: Nanotechnology Science and Technology, Materials Science and Technologies


Due to their one-dimensional structures and novel physical properties, nanofibrous materials have been extensively investigated and hold promising applications in various fields, including electronic, optical, semiconductors, sensors, polymer fillers and nonwoven porous membranes. This book presents current research in the study of the synthesis, properties and application of nanofibers. Topics include the functionalization and activation of carbon nanofibers; fabrication of aligned polymer and metal oxide nanofibers by electrospinning; inorganic nanofibers for novel separation membranes; the physics behind the vapor-liquid-solid route and carbon nanofiber formation; preparation and modification of chitin nanofibers; and the synthesis of composite carbon nanofibers with macroscopic shaping.
