Nanoscale: a challenge that gave to humankind a big dream. After the famous talk of Prof. Feyman the nanotechnologies have aroused in the scientist scenario new ways to change and manipulate the material properties and performances. Nanoscale is an intermediate scale that bridge the microscale and the atomic scale. The nanoscale exhibited its effectiveness in different research and industrial areas such as in the manufacturing of advanced electronic equipment or in the catalysis of chemical processes. Among the technologies that are nowadays used to realize nanoscaled materials or that are able to manipulate the matter at the nanoscale the electrospinning technology is one of the most promising and growing.

In the present talk some of the main features of electrospinning process will be introduced as well as the main applications of polymeric electrospun nanofibrous mats (where the nanofibers are collected in a random way or following a dedicated architecture) are introduced. In particular some applications of polymeric nanofibrous scaffolds for tissue engineering are described. During the talk some details about the electrospinning equipment design will be explained as well as a future challenge in the bionics will be briefly introduced.

This talk is part of the Engineering Design Centre series.
