Description

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. It is a nanofiber fabrication technology and a key research area. Electrospinning is a more convenient and efficient method of preparing nanofibers than stretching, phase separation, or similar methods. Melt Electrospinning introduces the latest results from a leading research group in this area, exploring the structure, equipment polymer properties and spinning conditions of melt electrospinning. The book describes the principles and progress of electrospinning. The book is divided in to four parts. The first part introduces the invention of melt electrospinning, including the independent development of centrifugal melt electrospinning and upward melt electrospinning. The two methods are optimized for yield and fiber diameters, respectively. The second part introduces electro magnetization of melt and the testing method of fiber performance by means of different polymers and self-designed devices. The third part introduces DPD simulation. This simulation technique is a method of simulating molecular chain structure and orientation in the spinning process. The fourth part introduces principle methods and improvement measures of centrifugal melt electrospinning. Electrospinning has many potential applications. This book provides a useful and unique introduction to contemporary electrospinning research
