Preparation of Polyacrylamide Nanofibers by Electrospinning
Polyacrylamide (PAM) nanofibers was spun by electrospinning. In order to increase the molecular weight of the PAM, It has been cross linked by Glutaraldehyde solution. By means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the effect of electrospun technological parameters on the fibers’ morphology were researched. The parameters include the concentration of PAM spinning solution, the applied voltage and tip-collector distance (TCD). The PAM nanofibers of uniform thickness with the fibers’ diameter distribution of 80 ~ 160nm were got under the conditions as followers: the concentration of 16 wt.%, applied voltage of 23 kV, the TCD of 13cm.
