Sterculia urens (Gum Karaya) based polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) composite nanofibres have been successfully electrospun after chemical modification of S. urens to increase its solubility. The effect of deacetylated S. urens (DGK) on the morphology, structure, crystallization behaviour and thermal stability was studied for spuned fibres before and after spinning post treatment. An apparent increase in the PVA crystallinity were observed in the PVA-DGK composite nanofibres indicating S. urens induced…
