Development of Food Nanostructures by Electrospinning
MetadataShow full item record
In this chapter, a novel technique, named electrospinning, that is increasingly used to develop nano-fibers and nano-membranes that can be used in different areas such as filter media or food processing, is described. Particular attention was devoted to the material and processing parameters that are of paramount importance in developing useful nano-fiber materials. A number of important examples of application of this technology to the food and environmental sectors are reported.
