Abstract/Summary

Electrospinning is a technique that involves the production of nanoscale to microscale sized polymer fibres through the application of an electric field to a droplet of polymer solution passed through a spinneret tip. This chapter considers the optimisisation of the electrospinning process and in particular the variation with solution concentration. We show the strong connection between overlapping chains and the successful spinning of fibres. We use small-angle neutron scattering to evaluate the molecular conformations in the solutions and in the fibres.
