COSTA, Rodrigo G. F. et al. Electrospinning of polymers in solution: part II: applications and perspectives. Polímeros [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.2, pp. 178-185. Epub Mar 13, 2012. ISSN 0104-1428. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-14282012005000018.
In our previous review, the process of electrospinning was discussed on the basis of theoretical and experimental aspects toward preparation of different polymeric nanofibers. In this second review, we focus on the aspects related to the application of electrospun materials in various fields such as medicine, agriculture, sensors, and processing of other materials. We discuss the most often characterization techniques used for these materials and their potential. This review complements the previous one and uses the same terminology.
