The electro spinning process is of great utility in the manufacture of non-woven fabrics for a variety of applications including tissue engineering. A machine has been constructed capable of electrostatically spinning (electro spinning) a wide range of.
ELECTROSPINNING OF NANOFIBERS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS. Electrospinning is a useful and efficient technique to produce ultrafine polymeric fibers. It has been a process of great scientific and industrial interest due to its versatility, cost-efficiency and potential to be used in a wide range of applications, resulting in an outstanding potential for nanotechnology research. As it is regarded.
The electrospinning technique provides non-wovens to the order of few nanometers with large surface areas, ease of functionalisation for various purposes and superior mechanical properties. Also.Electrospinning, a method of making nanofiber mats from solutions of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), polymer and solvent, has shown great promise for producing final solid dosage forms with minimal process steps. In this thesis, we explore the use of electrospinning to produce fiber mats containing either amorphous or crystalline API, aiming to develop the process such that it can.Brown, Toby David (2015) Melt electrospinning writing. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology. Preview. Toby Brown Thesis (PDF 11MB) Description This thesis has developed an innovative additive manufacturing technology platform, which combines melt electrospinning with direct writing, allowing the fabrication of a new class of highly-ordered ultrafine fibrous materials.
The thesis addresses two different but related topics. The first topic is improvement of the water vapour barrier properties of PLA films. The effect of montmorillonite clay and its alignment on water vapour permeability and the effect of crystallinity (introduced by annealing) on nanoclay alignment and barrier properties were investigated (Chapter 4). PLA nanocomposites containing 0 to 5 wt.Read More

Electrospinning is a highly efficient nanofiber preparation technology, which includes solution electrospinning and melt electrospinning. Melt electrospinning is considered to be safer and more economical than solution electrospinning, because melt electrospinning is environmentally friendly, low-cost, and highly efficient. Currently, researchers are always look from the perspective of.Read More
Electrohydrodynamic processes namely electrospinning and electrospraying are facile, cost effective and flexible methods that utilize electrically charged jet of polymer solution for production of fibers or particles at micron, submicron and nanoscale. The electrospun fibers and electrosprayed particles possess many structural and functional advantages.Read More

The specific removal of molecules from various media is an area receiving increasing attention. Affnity membranes, i.e. membranes containing ligands, which can specifically capture target molecules, can meet this demand. One important area, in which the use of affinity membranes will be beneficial, is blood filtration, specifically haemodialysis treatments.Read More

Electrospinning or electrostatic fibre spinning employs electrostatic force to draw fibres from a liquid, either a polymeric solution or a polymer melt in the form of a charged jet. The jet solidifies and is deposited on a collector in the form of a non-woven fibrous mat. Electrospun fibres have diameters between several nanometres to a few microns, which is one of the main advantages of the.Read More
Electrospinning is a fiber production method which uses electric force to draw charged threads of polymer solutions or polymer melts up to fiber diameters in the order of some hundred nanometers. Electrospinning shares characteristics of both electrospraying and conventional solution dry spinning of fibers. The process does not require the use of coagulation chemistry or high temperatures to.Read More
This thesis presents the possible mechanisms by which nanofillers improve the heat and erosion resistance of silicone rubber nanocomposites, and also addresses the possible mechanism by which electrospinning improves nanofiller dispersion.Read More
