Hongjun Luo, Yong Huang, Dongshan Wang and Jun Shi Coaxial-electrospinning as a new method to study confined crystallization of polymer Journal of Polymer Science Part B: Polymer Physics 51
Confined crystallization of semicrystalline polymers has been widely studied. In this work, a new method to prepare the confinement environment by using coaxial electrospinning for the confined crystallization of semicrystalline polymers has been explored. This method has been utilized to produce core–sheath nanofibers for functional materials. The crystallization of polyethylene glycol (PEG) confined in a cellulose acetate nanotube and the thermal behaviors of the recrystallized PEG are discussed. The core–sheath nanofibers can provide a novel model for confined crystallization under one-dimensional confinements.
