Our recent attempts to apply standard molecular simulation techniques to the process of electrospinning are presented. We employ a molecular dynamics simulation to study phenomena involved in the electrospinning of polymer solutions, with particular attention to the formation of the Taylor cone and the development of a liquid jet. A molecular-based approach allows us to reveal the molecular structure and dynamics, which are inaccessible to continuum methods.Keywords: electrospinning; molecular simulation; fluids in electric field; polymer solutions
