Nanoelectrospray aerosols were formed from microporous polymer wick sources. Current-voltage characteristics were measured as a function of solution electrical conductivity and surface tension and two distinct electrospray modes were observed. In the first mode, when the maximum capillary flow rate through the wick exceeds the electrospray flow rate, a single electrospray forms from a droplet at the end of the wick. In the second mode, when the maximum capillary flow rate is less than the electrospray flow rate, a multitude of microscopic nanoelectrospray sources are formed from within the surface of the wick tip.
