Title: Structural analyses of blended Nafion/PVDF electrospun nanofibers

Abstract

A new type of polymer blend, prepared by electrospinning nanofibers containing the immiscible polymer polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF, 10 wt%) and Nafion® perfluorosulfonic acid (90 wt%), has been characterized experimentally.
