Abstract

This paper investigates the effect of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) concentration on the spinning parameters such as solution viscosity, Taylor cone width, number of Taylor cone/m(2) and spinnability in roller electrospinning process. The results indicate that solution viscosity, Taylor cone width, number of Taylor cone/m(2) and spinning performance increase with PVA concentration. There is a strong relation between these parameters. Also fiber properties were analyzed using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) pictures.
