Electrostatic spinning. The choice of solvent is very important to dissolve a specific polymer and convert it into nanofibers by electrospinning. The solubility of the polymer in the solvent and the boiling point, which fully reflects the volatility of the solvent, are two main properties to consider when choosing a solvent. Volatile solvents are better choices due to their lower boiling points, which cause the nanofibers to dehydrate along the circuit from the capillary tip to the collector surface, resulting in a faster evaporation rate.

However, highly volatile solvents with very low boiling points should not be used as they evaporate at the tip of the capillary and can also cause clogging and blockage of the polymer solution flow. Solvents with high boiling points may not dry completely before reaching the collector, resulting in ribbon-like nanofiber morphologies or aggregation of nanofibers at boundaries [36, 46]. The electrospinning capabilities of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) were reported by Yang et al.[45] tested with different solvents.

The solvents studied were MC, ethanol, and DMF, beaded nanofibers were formed from DCM and DMF-PVP solutions using ethanol-made PVP nanofibers. The electrospun nanofibers resulting from the incorporation of ethanol and DMF were only 20 nm in diameter, while the combination of ethanol and DCM led to the formation of nanofibers with a diameter of 300 nm (see Figure 7).

Therefore, it was concluded that the morphology and porosity of nanofibers can be tuned through reasonable use of solvents or a combination of solvents. The amount of charge per unit area of the polymer droplets that make up the charge density is determined by the applied voltage, the working distance, and the conductivity of the polymer solution.

The applied voltage is used to create the driving force to rotate the fibers by imparting charge to the polymer droplets. In addition to the applied voltage, the working distance, i.e. the distance between the tip of the syringe and the collector plate, can also influence the structural morphology of the nanofibers.

Demir et al.[35] proposed that when higher voltages are applied, more polymers are sprayed to form larger diameter fibers.

Also, high stress conditions produced a stiffer fiber structure. To reduce globule formation, Zhong et al.

Proposed an approach to increase the charge density on the droplet surface by adding salt particles. However, high charge density, Demir et al. Ile Pham et al.  Various types of nozzles or nozzles have been used over the years [49]. The influence of needle diameter on the average diameter of electrospun poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanofibers was reported by Xavier Makusai et al.[49] shown. Although these fibers have regular surface morphologies, several classes of nanofibers can be seen in Figure 9.

Show that at low field strengths, a drop usually hangs from the tip of the needle and a cone of Taylor electricity forms, generating spin without the ball (assuming the electric field strength is sufficient to eliminate surface tension). Hao Shao et al.

When the molten polymer is less viscous, it can flow more easily through the nozzle. Molten polymer is usually a thick liquid with high viscosity. Therefore, if the nozzle is too small and the melt is too viscous, the melt cannot be ejected. Therefore, a suitable nozzle should be used.

electrostatic spinning solution

Studied the effect of high voltage and observed a change in morphology after changing the high voltage, as shown in.The size of the needles has a certain influence on the diameter of the nanofibers. It was discovered that the decrease in the diameter of the electrospun nanofibers is due to the decrease in the inner diameter of the needle. The nozzle (usually set to a syringe needle) determines the amount of molten polymer produced. This affects both the size of the drop formed and the pressure or force required by the pump to eject the melt.
