Electrospinning of Nanofibres
The group is meticulously working towards investigating the significance of various electrospinning parameters and the manner in which they affect the fiber diameter. Our group has been successful in generalizing the “concept of minimum electrospinning voltage” for different class of polymers such as Polyacrylonitrile and Polyvinyl alcohol. The aim of such fundamental studies is to achieve excellent control over reproducibility of electrospinning technique and fibers with controlled/desired diameter. Such repeatability of the process and controlled fiber forming capability is mandatory for industrial applications like filtration, flexible conductors and semi-conductors and biomedical applications like tissue engineering.
