PVA/MWNTs Composite Nanofibers Prepared by Electrospun
The Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/ multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNT) nanofibers were prepared by electrospun assisted by high-energy sonication. The morphological structures and characterized of the nanofibers were observed via scanning electronic microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). Electrical properties and mechanical properties of the film have been tested. The results indicate that the introduction of ATO nanoparticles into the polymer matrix has a significant effect on the thermal stability properties of PVA and a strong interaction between PVA and MWNTs.
