About this product
- DescriptionElectrospinning is from the academic as well as technical perspective presently the most versatile technique for the preparation of continuous nafi bers obtained from numerous materials including polymers, metals, and ceramics. Shapes and properties of fibers can be tailored according to the demand of numerous applications including filtration, membranes, textiles, catalysis, reinforcement, or biomedicals. This book summarizes the state-of-the art in electrospinning with detailed coverage of the various techniques, material systems and their resulting fiber structures and properties, theoretical aspects and applications. Throughout the book, the current status of kwledge is introduced with a critical view on accomplishments and vel perspectives. An experimental section gives hands-on guidance to beginners and experts alike.
- Author BiographyJoachim Wendorff was full professor for physical chemistry and polymer physics at the Philipps-University of Marburg, Germany. He received his doctorate from the University of Marburg in 1969 for work in the fi eld of polymer physics with F. H. Mueller. After a postdoctoral stay with F. P. Price in Amherst, he became a research assistant with E. W.Fischer at the University of Mainz. In 1982, he completed his habilitation in physical chemistry there. From 1976 to 1991, he headed the Physics Department at the German Polymer Institute (DKI) in Darmstadt. In 1990, he took up a professorship in physics at the TH Darmstadt, and in 1991 he moved to a professorship in physical chemistry/polymer physics at the Philipps-University at Marburg. His research interests include functional polymers, liquid crystals, polymer alloys, molecular reinforcement, nanostructuring, and electrospinning. Seema Agarwal is extraordinary professor at the Philipps-University of Marburg, Germany, since 2010. She received her PhD in polymer chemistry at the Indian Institute of Technology (I.I.T.) in Delhi, India in the year 1995. She carried out postdoctoral research work at the Philipps-University of Marburg, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Agarwal is a recipient of the 2009 Hermann-Schnell Prize (GDCh). Andreas Greiner is full professor for Macromolecular Chemistry and Technology at the Philipps-University of Marburg, Germany. He studied chemistry at the University of Marburg and earned his doctorate there in 1988. After a postdoctoral stay with D. Pearson and H.-W. Schmidt in Santa Barbara, he returned to Marburg, where he completed his habilitation in macromolecular chemistry in 1995. In the same year, he took up a professorship at the University of Mainz, and in 2000, he became full for Professor of Macromolecular Chemistry and Technology in Marburg. His research interests include the classical synthesis of monomers and polymers, specialty processing like electrospinning, polymer-nanoparticle conjugates, as well as the applications of polymers in optics, electronics, and medicine.
