Electrospinning is a versatile technique for generating ultrathin fibers (nanofibers). Electrospinning have a wide variety of applications in tissue engineering, bone graft, wound dressing, drug release, etc. due to their unique properties and nanoscale structure. The basic set up consists of a high voltage system, spinneret and collector. The technique involve an electrohydrodynamic process in which a charged liquid polymer solution is introduced into an electric field by which liquid droplet is electrified to generate a jet, followed by stretching and elongation to generate fibers.
