Electrospinning of PEO with Disk Collector
We electrospun PEO into aligned nanofibers using the disk collector. The disk collector can spin aligned nanofiber bundles without base materials (substrates). Generally, the more the disk collector rotates, the higher alignment can be obtained. The collector can rotate at 3000rpm at the maximum. &n・・・
Electrospinning PCL into aligned nanofibers
Using the drum collector we spun PCL (Polycaprolactone) into aligned nanofiber sheets with electrospinning method. PCL has excellent characteristics such as biodegradability and mechanical strength, and is widely used for purposes such as agricultural and medical materials. Further applications usin・・・
Electrospinning hollow fibers with the ultra-thin coaxial spinneret
With the ultra-thin coaxial spinneret we electrospun PMMA (Poly methyl methacrylate) into hollow fibers. The spinneret has a core/shell structure and can spin hollow or core/shell nanofibers
Electrospinning of nanofibers from chitosan
We made nanofiber sheets from chitosan with electrospinning method. Chitosan is a material obtained by deacetylating chitin contained in a crab shell, which is attracting attentions as safe natural polymers for the applications such as additives and regenerative medicine.
Successful spinning of cellulose nanofiber!
We succeeded in electrospinning cellulose nanofiber using ethyl cellulose by the request from Professor Okada at Kurashiki University of Science and the Art. Below, photos of fibers on black paper (actual fiber and SEM photo) We look forward to it being some product in the near future.
