This study focused on the preparation of electrospun polystyrene (PS) nanofibers. PS solutions were prepared in single (dimethylformamide; DMF, dimethylacetamide; DMAc or tetrahydrofuran; THF) and mixed solvent (DMF/THF and DMAc/THF) systems with and without tetrabutylammonium bromide (TBAB) salt. The effects of PS concentration, solvent system, the addition of salt, appearance and diameter of PS fibers were examined. The average diameter of the as-spun fibers increased upon increasing PS… CONTINUE READING
