Coaxial electrospinning with organic solvent for controlling the size of self-assembled nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

We show that coaxial electrospinning using organic solvent as the sheath fluid is a viable way to produce tailor-made nanofibers composed of polyvinylpyrrolidine, tristearic and naproxen. Self-assembled hybrid nanoparticles are generated from the composite nanofibers under aqueous conditions and particle size has a linear relationship with fiber diameter.
