  • Jacobs, V; Patnaik, A; Anandjiwala, RD; Maaza, M (Bentham Science Publishers, 2011-06)
    Electrospinning of chitosan, a naturally occurring polysaccharide biopolymer, has been investigated. In this paper, the authors report the optimization of electrospinning process and solution parameters using factorial ...
  • Jacobs, V; Patanaik, A; Anandjiwala, RD (American Scientific Publishers, 2011-11)
    This paper reports the optimization of electrospinning process and solution parameters using factorial design approach to obtain uniform polyethylene oxide (PEO) nanofibers. The parameters studied were distance between ...
  • Mokhena, TC; Jacobs, V; Luyt, AS (Budapest University of Technology, 2015-05)
    Over the past decades, electrospinning of biopolymers down to nanoscale garnered much interest to address most of the millennia issues related to water treatment. The fabrication of these nanostructured membranes added a ...
  • Mngomezulu, ME; John, MJ; Jacobs, V; Luyt, AS (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    The subject on flammability properties of natural fibre-reinforced biopolymer composites has not been broadly researched. This is not only evidenced by the minimal use of biopolymer composites and/or blends in different ...
  • Jacobs, V; Anandjiwala, RD; Jacob John, Maya; Mathew, AP; Oksman, K (2010-09)
    This paper examines the preparation and properties of cellulose whiskers and chitin whiskers reinforced chitosan nanocomposite fibres by the process of electrospinning. A dispersion of cellulose and chitin whiskers in ...
