Item description for An Introduction to Electrospinning and Nanofibers by Seeram Ramakrishna, Kazutoshi Fujihara, Wee-eong Teo, Teik-cheng Lim & Zuwei Ma...
The research and development of nanofibers has gained much prominence in recent years due to the heightened awareness of its potential applications in the medical, engineering and defense fields. Among the most successful methods for producing nanofibers is the electrospinning process. In this timely book, the areas of electrospinning and nanofibers are covered for the first time in a single volume. The book can be broadly divided into two parts: the first comprises descriptions of the electrospinning process and modeling to obtain nanofibers while the second describes the characteristics and applications of nanofibers. The material is aimed at both newcomers and experienced researchers in the area.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Introduction to Electrospinning and Nanofibers?
Neutral about it ..... Aug 30, 2007
There are only a few books that discuss these topics and only in one or two chapters. This book brings a fair review of the theory of electrospinning and some of the current state of the technology in one reference. I felt like the work of some research groups was not discussed or even mentioned. A problem that many of these books have and make you question its "sientific neutrality or objectivity (sorry if I mispelled)." Good for a first read into the topic and as a starting point for a literature review.
Now some comments not related to the content. Even someone whose first language is not english (like me), can not ignore the large ammount of typos and grammatical errors. I could not control myself and ended up reading and correcting the errors with a red pen. Some people may be put-off by this. I got the paperback edition which has a fair price (compared to other books that you may pay more and get the same quality). The hardback is not worth it.
