- Nanofabrication; Janus structure; electrospinning; nanofibers
Janus and core–shell nanostructures are the most fundamental structural characteristics for comprising all types of multiple-chamber structures. The facile preparation of Janus structure is one of the most difficult challenges in the field of nanofabrication, whose production can pave a broad way for generating a wide variety of hierarchic nanostructures. Based on several most recent reports, this mini review provides some comments on the generation of Janus nanofibers on the following topics: (1) the key points for fabricating Janus nanofibers using side-by-side electrospinning; (2) the strategies for functionalizing the Janus nanofibers; and (3) the possibilities of complex nanostructures started from the two-chamber Janus structures.
