Fabrication of Carbon Nanotube Embedded Nylon Nanofiber Bundles by Electrospinning
The electrospinning is a novel and efficient tool for fabrication of carbon nanotube (CNTs) -polymer composites. We have fabricated polymer/CNTs composite by doping multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) in nylon fibers using electrospinning technique. The solution, containing MWNTs/nylon, was ejected from the spinneret to form fibers. Spun fibers were collected on the water surface in the water bath and transfer to the winding drum. We observed that, the unwoven fibers were transformed into aligned bundles. The fiber alignment is discussed. The electrical properties of the aligned fibers were analyzed.
