  • In this paper, a reactor-like spinneret is proposed to generate a continuous hollow hydrogel fiber. In order to reliably control the deforming dynamics, the components of the spinneret are standardized in order to ease the online observation of morphological evolution. We found that not only did a co-flow occur in the tubular space, but a relatively large shrinkage of the shell layer at the outlet also occurred. Whereupon a weak coupling of the velocity field and diffusion-reacting co-flow was… CONTINUE READING
