Poly(vinylidene fluoride) electrospun fibers for electroactive scaffold aplications: Influence of the applied voltage on morphology and polymorphism

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Electrospinning is a well known method for processing flexible and highly porous nanofiber scaffolds by applying a high electric field to a droplet of polymer solution or melt. The morphology of the electrospun Poly(vinylidene floride) - based scaffolds (EPS) was investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In particular, the average fiber diameter decreases with increasing applied voltage. The samples are mainly in the electroactive ß-phase, the amount of aα-phase decreasing with increasing processing voltage. Thermal properties and polymorphism of the polymeric scaffolds were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry and infrared spectroscopy, respectively. © 2009 Materials Research Society.
