Electrospinning of Polymer Nanofibres from Multiple Jets on a Porous Tubular Surface
A novel method for the electrospinning of multiple polymer jets into nanofibres is presented. In this work, 20 wt% nylon 6 solution was electrified and pushed by air pressure through the walls of a porous polyethylene tube. Multiple jets formed on the porous surface and electrospun into nanoscale fibres. The length weighted fibre diameters have a similar mean diameter to those from a single jet but broader in distribution. The mass production rate from the porous tube is 250 times greater than from a typical single jet.
