The electrospinning technique has received considerable interest in developing the engineered structure that can mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the native tissue and facilitate nutrient transport during tissue regeneration. The possibility of producing very thin fibers in the diameter range of few micrometers to nanometers, high surface area, ease to performance with superior mechanical strength make electrospinning an attractive technique for diverse applications. Tissue engineering and biomedicine are the important areas where the developed electrospun fibers can be explored. It is accessible to tune the physicochemical properties of the electrospun fibers by varying parameters, such as materials molecular weight, solvent, injection rate, and collector speed. The co-axial electrospinning technique generates fibrous structures of non-electrospun materials (metals, ceramics) with the polymeric materials as a core-shell nanofiber template for different applications. The special issue explores the electrospinning technique to develop the engineered structure for tissue engineering and biomedicine applications. We anticipate that this special issue will receive the current state of the art and explore the wide range of applications.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs).
