Electrospinning of polymer nanofibers: Effects on oriented morphology, structures and tensile properties
Abstract The interest in fabrication of nanofibers using electrospinning method has attracted considerable attention due to its versatile maneuverability of producing controlled fiber structures,… Expand
Effect of fiber diameter on tensile properties of electrospun poly(ɛ-caprolactone)
Abstract The tensile properties of electrospun fibers have not been widely investigated due to the difficulties in handling nanofibers and measuring low load for deformation. In this study, the… Expand
Electrospinning induced ferroelectricity in poly(vinylidene fluoride) fibers.
Poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) fibers with diameters ranging from 70 to 400 nm are produced by electrospinning and the effect of fiber size on the ferroelectric β-crystalline phase is determined.… Expand
Non-covalently modified graphene sheets by imidazolium ionic liquids for multifunctional polymer nanocomposites
Chemical reduction of graphite oxide (GO) to produce graphene nanosheets often results in irreversible agglomeration and precipitation. Herein, stable well-dispersed graphene sheets in solvents were… Expand
