Nanofiber Sheets with the Superabsorbent Properties

Abstract:

Article Preview

The new electrospinning technology NanospiderTM offering a realistic potential for industrial production was used for creation of nanofiber sheets from aqueous solutions of partially neutralized poly(acrylic) acid with crosslinking agent. Produced nanofiber sheet was crosslinked by heat treatment. Absorption capacity and rate of absorption were tested and compared with superabsorbent particles and commercial superabsorbent fibers. The morphology of electrospun fibers was observed using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Possibilities of fiber diameter influence were studied.
