Join us for a talk by Dr. Sandip Patil, founder of E-Spin Nanotech, right before the BioPrinter meetup. If you're thinking about what's beyond 3D bioprinting, you'll want to attend this event!


Electrospun Nanofibers Technology and its Potential Industrial Applications

Electrospinning is very versatile and novel technique to manufacture ultrafine micro-nanofibers of out of polymer solutions. Polymers of any type can be spun into these micro-nanofibers, and it doesn’t matter whether they have organic,inorganic, or ceramic precursors. This process only requires that the polymer is in a solvent solution or melt form. The potential industrial applications of electrospun fibers are many, with potential applications in biotechnology, filter technology, energy, automobiles etc.


Dr. Sandip Patil, is the founder director of E-Spin Nanotech Pvt. Ltd., Dr. Patil earned his PhD from Department of Chemical Engineering from IIT Kanpur (INDIA). Dr. Patil is guiding one of the fast growing companies with focus on fabrication of electro-spinning units and fabrication of nano materials and its application in clean technology and biotechnology. Dr. Patil’s recognised by various prestigious fellowships and awards like, Rajeev Motwani Circle fellowship, IIChE Shah-Schulman Award, IIChE M. P. Chary Memorial award, ICT alumni award for Young Entrepreneur, Intellectual Ventures Invention award, Indian School of Business Scholarship award. Dr. Sandip Patil has published several of his work in very prestigious journals such as Macromolecules, Langmuir, Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research and Bulletin of material science and 5 more under preparation. He is also inventor of Indian patent on composite reusable adhesive and that of a US patent which is under process. Part of his innovation was covered by scientific news in CNN U.S. edition and Mint & the Wall Street Journal.
