Article Preview

An allometrical scaling relationship between the solution concentration and the nanofiber diameter in bubble electrospinning was established. The scaling law was validated with experimental results using bubble-electrospun Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) nanofibers at different concentration PVP solutions. The results showed that the average diameter of PVP nanofibers increased approximately exponentially with solution concentration in bubble electrospinning process. The experimental data agreed well with the theoretical predictions, and showed that the present model had high prediction accuracy.
