Abstract

original image

Microfiber–nanofiber composites are prepared by in situ formation of supramolecular nanofiber webs based on 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxamides in polymer nonwoven scaffolds. The supramolecular nanofibers are strongly fixed to nonwoven microfibers. These composites are sufficiently stable to be suited for air filtration applications.
