Working parameters are very important to understand not only the nature of electrospinning but also the conversion of polymer solutions into nanofibers through electrospinning. Those parameters can be broadly divided into three parts such as solution parameters, process parameters, and ambient parameters. Each of those parameters can affect the fibers morphologies and by proper control of those parameters we can fabricate electrospun fibers with desired morphologies and diameters. In this
more » ... r, we will present a concise introduction of those parameters and their influence on fiber properties. parameters In Sect. 2.1, we describe the affections of solution parameters on the conversion of polymer solutions into nanofibers during the electrospinning. The affections of process parameters and ambient parameters will be discussed in Sects. 2.2 and 2.3. For each of these affections, examples are presented, respectively.
