Carbon Nanofibers Prepared via Electrospinning



Carbon nanofibers prepared via electrospinning and following carbonization are summarized by focusing on the structure and properties in relation to their applications, after a brief review of electrospinning of some polymers. Carbon precursors, pore structure control, improvement in electrical conductivity,and metal loading into carbon nanofibers via electrospinning are discussed from the viewpoint of structure and texture control of carbon.
