Scission of electrospun polymer fibres by ultrasonication

Sawawi, Marini; Wang, Ting-Yi; Nisbet, David; Simon, George R.


In this work we show that sonication alone can be used to scission bulk electrospun membranes into short fibres. The mechanism of such scission events is bubble cavitation stimulated by the ultrasonic probe, followed by bubble implosion. The tendency of p
