Poly(L-Lactide) Composite Nanofibers Incorporating POSS-MWNTs
We report the electrospun poly(L-lactide) (PLA) nanofibers incorporating polyhedral oligosilsesquioxane (POSS)-modified multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). FT-IR, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Raman analysis confirmed the existence of POSS macromers bonded to the MWNTs as an extra phase. The thermal and microstructure properties of the PLA hybrid nanofibers with POSS-modified MWNTs were investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD).
