Electrospun Nanofibres of PLA/PANI and PLA/P (ANI-co-m-ABA): Thermal Studies
Composite nanofibres of poly (lactic acid) (PLA) with polyaniline (PANI) or poly (aniline-co-m-aminobenzoic acid) (P (ANI-co-m-ABA)) were prepared by electrospinning. Thermal effects on the properties of the composite nanofibres were studied by means of DSC and TGA. TGA results show that the onset thermal degradation temperature of the composite fibres was slightly higher than that of pure PLA. The degree of the crystallinity of the nanofibres was determined from DSC data and compared to film with the same composition.
