New Prospects in Melt Electrospinning: From Fundamentals to Biomedical Applications
Polymer Science and Engineering
Since melt electrospinning permits polymers with medical grade to be used without modification, this offers a remarkable benefit to gain regulatory support over biomedical systems prepared by solution electrospinning, which require expensive and challenging post-processing to remove toxic solvents. This chapter aims to identify the key components of melt electrospinning technique and addresses the different types of melt electrospinning apparatus, including multi-temperature control, laser melt, coaxial, needleless, and gas-assist electrospinning as well as melt electrospinning writing. Different biomedical applications of melt electrospinning, involving biosensors, drug delivery, and tissue engineering, are also discussed.
