In this study, protein-based nanofibers, their properties and application areas were investigated and nanofiber surface production was carried out with egg white protein. Proteins are divided into two main groups, vegetable and animal. These biological proteins have various uses in the food industry, cosmetics industry and especially in the medical field. In this research, protein-based polymers are subclassified according to their source. The general properties of these proteins and the usage areas of protein-based nanofibers are mentioned. In addition, nanofiber surfaces were obtained with electrospinning technology using egg white protein. The protein-based nanofibers are generally used in the field of biomedicine, drug delivery systems and tissue engineering in areas such as scaffolding, wound dressing, tissue generation. Apart from the medical field, it is also used as a packaging material in the food industry due to its biological structure. In addition, protein-based nanofibers have a wide range of uses such as filter material, biosensors, catalysts, skin prostheses, surgical threads, soft contact lenses and etc.
