Abstract

We have performed electro-spinning of poly(2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propane sulfonic acid) (PAMPS)/ethanol solution to produce uniform nanofibres. The optimum nanofibre morphologies were observed for a 6 wt% concentration solution, a 15 kV electric field, a 10 νl min-1 feeding rate, and a 15 cm distance between the capillary tip and grounded collector. The average diameter of the electro-spun fibres was of order 60 nm. We have been able to produce uniform nanofibres by controlling the various parameters of electro-spinning: change of concentration, electric field, and feeding rate. The effect of these parameters on the electro-spun nanofibres was investigated using field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM).
