Abstract

In this study, we simulated the electric field distribution of side-by-side electrospinning by using the finite element method (FEM), and studied the effects of spinneret wall thickness, spinning voltage and receiving distance on the distribution of the electrostatic field. The receiving distance was selected as a variable in the experimental, a series of PAN/PSA composite nanofiber membranes were prepared by using a self-made side by side electrospinning device. The membranes were tested by Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR), thermogravimetric analysis (TG), and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The prepared membranes were also treated by high-temperature treatment, and the change of fiber diameter and conductivity of the membrane before and after high-temperature treatment were studied. It was found that the PAN/PSA carbonized nanofibers could achieve a better performance in heat resistance and conductivity at 200 mm receiving distance. View Full-Text
