Nanofibers are a new class of material with special properties, so they are used for several applications such as: medical textiles, military equipments, filtration, barrier, wipes, personal care, composite, garments, insulation, transportation, electronic devices, and energy storage. Also the discovery and rapid evolution of carbon nanotubes have led to a vastly improved understanding of nanotechnology, as well as dozens of possible applications for nanomaterials of different shapes and sizes. Nowadays, electrospinning is seen as a special technique for obtaining polymer nanofibers. Many polymers have been electrospun into ultrafine fibers in recent years, mostly in solvent solution. There are many applications based on nanofibers, especially as reinforcement in nanocomposite. In this paper, is presented a point of view on the researches and developments related to electrospun polymer nanofibers including processing, structure, characterization and applications.
