Abstract

The use of the electrospinning technique is a promising and versatile method for producing fibrous nonwovens from various polymers. Here we present fibre formation via direct electrospinning of a soluble polyimide, a class of polymers that is typically insoluble. In this study solution parameters as the solvent and the polymer concentration are investigated. Furthermore relevant process parameters are varied for optimization of the performance. The presented data indicate polyimide as a promising material for the fabrication of nanofibrous nonwovens via direct electrospinning.

Keywords: electrospinning; nanofibres; nonwoven; polyimide
