Characterization of Electrospun Poly(p-dioxanone) and Poly(p-dioxanone)/Clay Nanocomposite Fibers
PPDO was successfully electrospun into continuous, ultrafine fibers by using DMSO as solvent for the first time. The concentration of PPDO in DMSO and the electrospinning temperature were optimized. PPDO/LAP nanocomposites were also electrospun in DMSO. At 70 °C, ultrafine PPDO fibers were obtained from 35 wt% solution and the PPDO/LAP nanocomposite fibers were yielded from 55 wt% solution. Electrospun fibers of the PPDO/LAP nanocomposites showed higher degree of crystallinity due to the presence of embedded nanoparticles.
