During recent years, nanoscaled materials have gained much attention because of their applications in the field of pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. Electrospinning/electrospraying, as simple, effective and single-step methods, are used in the preparation of nanostructured materials (nanofibers and nanobeads). They offer an opportunity for direct encapsulation of the different types of drug molecules. The generated nanomaterials possess high surface area with porous characteristics, and the liberation of the loaded drugs follows a controlled-release pattern. Because of their wide applications in medical/pharmaceutical researches, the aim of this editorial is to highlight the importance of electrospinning/electrospraying technologies in drug delivery.
