Electrospinning of polyacrylonitrile nanofibres with additives : study of orientation and crystallinity
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Polyacrylonitrile, (PAN), polymers are of interest due to their many unique characteristics in comparison to most other fibre forming polymers. The focus of this study was the effect of electrospinning ...
Novel electrospun fibres of amphiphilic organic-inorganic graft copolymers of poly(acrylonitrile)-graftpoly( dimethylsiloxane) for silicone composite reinforcement
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Novel silicone nanocomposites were prepared using poly(acrylonitrile) (PAN) based reinforcing fibres as well as multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). Compatibility of the fibre fillers with the silicone ...
Synthesis of permanent non-leaching antimicrobial polymer nanofibers
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Antimicrobial fibers are very useful in various fields such as air and water purification, wound dressings and protective bandages, where sterile environments are essential. The nonwoven nanofiber mats ...
