In this study, we produce functional nanofibers/nanowebs containing active agents such as essential oils, antibacterials, antioxidants, flavors/fragrances via electrospinning technique. The encapsulation of these active agents into electrospun nanofibers/nanowebs was quite possible, however, their stability and/or shelf-life was limited due to their volatile nature. Nevertheless, by forming cyclodextrin inclusion complexes (CD-IC) with these active agents and incorporating CD-IC into electrospun nanofibers/nanowebs, we achieved high temperature stability, slow release and prolonged shelf-life for these active agents. These functional electrospun nanofibers/nanowebs containing active agents can be quite applicable in active food packaging, textiles, biotechnology, etc.

Electrospinning of nanofibers from non-polymeric systems : electrospun nanofibers from native cyclodextrins Çelebioğlu, Aslı; Uyar, Tamer (Elsevier, 2013)Electrospinning of nanofibers from non-polymeric systems is rather challenging, yet in this study, we have successfully performed electrospinning of nanofibers from two of the native cyclodextrins (CDs); α-CD and β-CD. ...
Fabrication of hafnia hollow nanofibers by atomic layer deposition using electrospun nanofiber templates Donmez, I.; Kayaci, F.; Akgun, C. O.; Uyar, Tamer; Bıyıklı, Necmi (Elsevier, 2013)Hafnia (HfO2) hollow nanofibers (HNs) were synthesized by atomic layer deposition (ALD) using electrospun nylon 6,6 nanofibers as templates. HfO2 layers were deposited on polymeric nanofibers at 200 °C by alternating ...
