Electrical spinning to electrospinning: a brief history

By K Ghosal, C Agatemor, Nick Tucker, E Kny and S Thomas


Fine fibers made by electrostatic force have been discussed, investigated, and patented for a long time starting already in the late 18th century. However, till the eighties of the 20th century, potential applications for such fibers were restricted by different technological limitations. In 1995, Doshi and Reneker reworked and simplified the electrical spinning process. The book begins with this journey, how the invention fuelled applications and also presents a short account on current status of electrospinning in diverse application field
