What is it about?

This study focuses on the effect of the rheological properties of the polymer solution on its nanofibers' characteristics. Various Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) concentrations have been added to a constant ratio of Dextrin and Naproxen (NAP). Nanofiber morphology was examined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) devices

Why is it important?

The results showed that the solutions' non-Newtonian nature reduces the shear viscosity by increasing the shear rate for all solutions


The SEM micrograph and DSC thermograms show that the diameter, alignment, and the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the nanofiber improved with an increase in PVA concentrations.
