FROM THE GUEST EDITORS: THERMODYNAMICS FOR GREEN TEXTILES AND GREEN ENERGY
Green textiles have been caught much attention recently. This issue focuses on green fabrication of nanomaterials including nanofibers, nanoparticles, and nanoporous materials using the bubble electrospinning and its various modifications .
The bubble electrospinning and its modifications use an external force, e. g., electrostatic force, blowing air, mechanical force, to overcome the surface tension of polymer bubbles. Thermodynamics plays an important role in the green fabrication, it can endow a bubble with a minimal surface tension, as a result minimal energy is required during the spinning
process; see theoretical analysis in . Furthermore environmental pollution and production pollution can be completely avoided due to no poisonous solvents involved in spinning process. Research group leaded by Dr. Ji-Huan He of Soochow University concentrates several themes on bubble electrospinning and its applications...
