Abstract:

Electro-centrifuge spinning is a novel, innovative, high-performance, and simple method to produce polymeric nanofibers based on using electrical and centrifugal forces. In this paper, first the electro-centrifuge method is presented and then an experiment is conducted to explore the range of centrifugal speed for the production of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) polymer nanofibers at different concentrations and voltages. Finally, the effect of important parameters such as rotational speed of the apparatus, concentration, and applied voltage on the flow rate of the polymer solution is estimated analytically and compared with experimental results.
