Abstract

Mass production of nanofibers from needleless electrospinning shows great potential in research and development of nanofibers. However, how to improve the electrospinning performance so as to achieve high quality nanofibers is still of great challenge. In this study, airflow has been applied to optimize upward needleless electrospinning from ring spinneret. Effects of airflow speed and the position of airflow on the nanofiber quality
and production rate have been investigated. It has been found that thinner and more uniform nanofibers were produced when airflow was applied to needleless electrospinning system. It also improved the collected nonwoven membrane, resulting in better nanofibrous structure of the as-spun nanofibers. Application of airflow on needleless electrospinning would further benefit the development of mass production of nanofibers from needleless electrospinning.
