The Effects of Organic Solvent on the Electrospinning of Water-Soluble Polyacrylamide with Ultrahigh Molecular Weight
The effects of an organic solvent on the electrospinning of water-soluble polyacrylamide with ultrahigh molecular weight were investigated. An organic solvent, DMF, was introduced to the polyacrylamide aqueous solution and subsequently, transparent spinning solutions were obtained. The spinning solution was electrospun at the voltage of 10 kV and the electrospun products were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Results indicated that all the electrospinning products including colloidal particles, beaded fibers and smooth fibers were fabricated in the DMF/H2O bi-component solvent and the morphology of electrospun products changed from smooth fiber to beaded fiber with the increasing amount of DMF used.
