This paper reports an electrospinning of cellulose nanofiber (CNF) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) blend for fabricating nanocellulose based long filament in terms of experiment and simulation. To enhance spinnability, Triton X-100 and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) was introduced as a surfactant and cosolvent, respectively. Parameters governing the electrospinning of CNF-PVA blend are voltage, spinning speed, nozzle diameter, the distance between the electrodes, and the viscosity of the blend. Node-based analysis of the electrospinning is performed with electrostatic field modeling via MATLAB software. With the simulation results, proper combinations of parameters are determined for CNF-PVA electrospinning. Furthermore, empirical demonstration of the CNF-PVA electrospinning is achieved. Electospun nanofiber mat is investigated by field emission scanning electron microscopy.
