Electrospinning is a process by which polymer nanofibers (with submicron scale diameters) can be formed when a droplet of viscoelastic polymer solution is subjected to high voltage electrostatic field. As this droplet travels in air, the solvent evaporates leaving behind a charge fiber that can be electrically deflected on a substrate. A series of nanofibers with various wt.% of PMMA (poly-methyl-methacrylate) to acetone were produced and characterized regarding their morphology and chemical composition. The nanofibers were characterized by Secondary Electron Microscopy, Atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Abstract

Electrospinning is a process by which polymer nanofibers (with submicron scale diameters) can be formed when a droplet of viscoelastic polymer solution is subjected to high voltage electrostatic field. As this droplet travels in air, the solvent evaporates leaving behind a charge fiber that can be electrically deflected on a substrate. A series of nanofibers with various wt.% of PMMA (poly-methyl-methacrylate) to acetone were produced and characterized regarding their morphology and chemical composition. The nanofibers were characterized by Secondary Electron Microscopy, Atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
