Electrospinning of carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCS) solutions in water was studied by adding poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) as “guest” polymer. The properties of the CMCS/PVA solutions measured, and effects of the polymer concentration, CMCS/PVA mass ratio and processing parameters on the electrospinnability of CMCS/PVA were investigated. Morphology of the electrospun CMCS/PVA observed by using scanning electron micrographs. Results showed that the ultra-fine fibers could be generated after addition… CONTINUE READING
