Preparation and characterization of poly(vinyl butyral) electrospun nanocomposite fibers reinforced with ultrasonically functionalized sepiolite

This study presents an investigation of the effects of the processing conditions on the uniformity, morphology and structure of patterned nanofibrous mats of electrospun poly(vinyl butyral)/sepiolite (PVB/Sep) nanocomposite fibers, which is a novel system for applications in materials for antiballistic protection, biomedical scaffolds and sorption for water purification.

Novel antibacterial electrospun mats based on poly(d,l-lactide) nanofibers and zinc oxide nanoparticles

This investigation addresses the morphological, mechanical, and antibacterial evaluation of nanocomposite mats based on poly(d,l-lactide) nanofibers with different zinc oxide nanoparticles (nano-ZnO) concentration, that were elaborated by two techniques, i.e., electrospinning of polymer/ZnO solutions and the combination of electrospinning of polymer solutions with electrospraying of nano-ZnO dispersion[..]

Infuence of solvent on the stability of electrospinning of PMMA nanofibers

In this paper the process of electrospinning of PMMA nanofibers was investigated. The influence of process parameters (type of solvent, solution concentration, flow rate, distance of needle and collector) on the nanofibers diameter uniformity and porosity was investigated. [..]
