Abstract

Electro-hydro-dynamic (EHD) compound jets, with diameters in the micro and nanometric size range, from conical menisci of two co-flowing liquids, is a consolidated platform for the production of nanofibers with inner structure, in a process so-called coaxial electrospinning or co-electrospinning. In contrast to other multi-step template based procedures, the EHD methodology is much more simple and general since, firstly, a solid template is needless and, secondly, the process is seldom affected by the chemistry of the liquids. This gentle process allows selecting the liquid precursors depending on the application sought for the nanofibers. Here, we review different products obtained by this EHD technique: (1) solid and hollow carbon nanofibers from different precursors (polyacrylonitrile, polyvinylpyrrolidone and lignin), (2) nanofibers of biocompatible polymers encapsulating liquids in the form of beads, (3) spinning nanofibers of alginate and (4) in-fiber encapsulation of active microgels.
