Novel characteristics of nanofibers and their updated achievements in medicine, chemistry, and electronics are analyzed. With their high-surface-to-volume ratio, nanofibers help to enhance the interactions between the substrates and targets such as cells (in medicine), chemicals (chemical processes) and electrons (in electronics).
