Abstract
The PEO/PLLA composite nanofibrous membranes were prepared by electrospinning technique for liquid phase filtration application. In this experiment, PLLA homopolymer and PLLA-PEG copolymer were added into PEO solution to increase hydrophobicity of nanofibrous membrane surface. PLLA content was fixed at 30% by weight of total solid. Morphology and fiber diameter were characterized from scanning electron microscope (SEM) images. Fiber diameters of PEO/PLLA homopolymer and PEO/PLLA-PEG copolymer are 582±78 nm and 657±167 nm, respectively. Surface wettability property of PEO/PLLA composite nanofibrous membranes were measured by apparent water contact angle. The apparent water contact angle value of PEO/PLLA is 120°±2°, while PEO/PEG-b-PLLA is 99°±7°. The surface wettability of PEO/PLLA composite nanofibrous membranes can be modified by varying type of polymer.
