Nanofibers are fibrous structure with an extremely fine diameter ranging from tens to hundreds of nanometers for a large surface area per unit mass and high flexibility, attracting attention in a variety of industrial fields. Due to the introduction of functional groups on the material's surface, the reatction of atoms or ions and relatively easy adhesion of nanoparticles, demand for nanofibers is rapidly increasing in the nanotechnology, materials science, and life science fields.

Application of nanofibers
Biotechnology and medicine
One of the fastest growing fields of application for electrospun nanofibers is that of regenerative medicine for cartilage, bone, skin tissues, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, lung tissues, heart tissues, etc. With a structure similar to extracellular matrices (ECM), electrospun fibers are particularly suitable for applications in biotechnology and medicine. Electrospinning can fabricate biocompatible polymeric fibers with not only the different materials but also the various morphological properties such as diameter and deposition direction allowing application in various ECM structures and tissue with different chemical and physical properties.
Nanofibers are used in products such as materials for filter media or masks. With a large surface to mass ratio, nanofibers can be used to separate particles in gases or liquids with excellent filtration efficiency and porosity. Nanofibers are recognized as being eco-friendly and are mainly applied in filtration as an eco-friendly material, with applications that can be broadly divided into air filters, water filters, fuel fiters, and antibacterial nanofibers for filters.
With improvemnets in the electrospinning process, the field of nanofiber manufacturing is expected to diversify into areas such as clothing and medical textiles. Clothing made of nanofibers has excellent water repellence as well as breathability, preventing contaminants from easily penetrating the fabric and allowing moisture to easily escapte. They are currently applied to sports and protective clothing, with a scope of application expected to expand in the future to mass production in areas such as general clothing and running shoes.
Through reduction technology via heat treatment of polymer, it is possible to manufacture not only polymers but also nanofibers composed of various materials such as carbon, metal, metal oxide, ceramic, and glass. Through this, electronic materials such as supercapacitors, secondary battery electrodes, fuel cell electrodes and transparent electrodes in the energy and electronics industries are expected.
