Graphical Abstract:


Background: Bubble electrospinning patent has been commercially used for the massproduction of various nanofibers, but its application to the fabrication of nanofiber yarns is less studied. We assume that there is great potential in this direction.

Objective: This paper focuses on bubble electrospinning with an emphasis on new technologies for the fabrication of fascinated nanofiber yarns by the bubble electrospinning.

Methods: The paper begins with the mechanism of the bubble electrospinning to introduce how it produces fascinated nanofiber yarns experimentally, then the industrialization of fascinated nanofiber yarns is illustrated.

Results: The bubble electrospinning is extremely suitable for the fabrication of fascinated nanofiber yarns with a hierarchical structure, and the hierarchy can be designed biomimetically according to some natural fibers.

Conclusion: This paper sheds light on both experimental study and industrial applications of fascinated nanofiber yarns.

Keywords: Nanofiber yarns, bubble electrospinning, fascinated nanofiber yarns, hierarchical structure, electrostatic force, solidified.
