Effect of side‐chain length on the electrospinning of perfluorosulfonic acid ionomers

The effect of the side‐chain length (short side chain and long side chain, SSC and LSC, respectively) of perfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) ionomers on the properties of nanofibers obtained by electrospinning ionomer dispersions in high dielectric constant liquids has been investigated with a view to obtaining electrospun webs as components of fuel cell membranes.

Micro‐Raman and photoluminescence analysis of composite vanadium oxide/poly‐vinyl acetate fibres synthesised by electro‐spinning

Composite vanadium oxide (VOx)‐based fibres were synthesised by the electro‐spinning method combined with conventional sol–gel processing using polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) as a polymeric binder and vanadium oxytriisopropoxide as a vanadium oxide precursor
