Nowadays biomedical applications play an important role for the nanomaterials electrospinning. Lots of publications by research teams of all over the world show how cells can be inducted to grow, select and differentiate by using growing substrates (scaffold) made of electrospun polymer.
The electrospun structure has nanometric dimensions, which produces pores able to grant a fast cell replication, also because of medicines added inside the structure.
Among the applications about studies or about research, there are:
- Epithelial prothesis
- Vascular prothesis
- Nervous prothesis
- Cartilaginous prothesis
It is important to point up the new high efficient photovoltaic materials and fuel cells by using electrospun nanomaterials’ application about the production of renewable energies.
You can realize three-dimensional structures with high specific surface, able to have less accident solar radiation’s reflection and better performances about the changeover of electric energy.
There are some studies about organic and ceramic membranes of fuel cells, because electrospinning technology allows high control of sponginess and an easy stratification of materials necessary to a best working of electric conversion.
You have the chance to realize easily nanostructured surfaces, with the same dimensions of visible and infrared radiation, in way of make them work as diffraction grating for the right wavelength.
You can change fluorescence or color adding to the electrospun polymer the right material, in order to make it suitable to environmental parameters and polluting agents, such as dangerous gases, explosives, etc.
