The Influence of Main Technological Parameters on the Diameter of Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) Nanofibre and Morphology of Manufactured Mat
An electrospinning method was used to prepare poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) nanofibre from 12 % concentration of PVA
solution. The influence of applied voltage and distance between electrodes on diameter of nanofibre and morphology of
the manufactured mat was investigated. These characteristics were observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). It
was concluded that PVA nanofibre diameter tended to increase with increasing applied voltage and to decrease with
increasing the distance between the electrodes. Morphology of the mat from PVA nanofibre was strongly affected by
technological parameters, too.
