Graft polymerization of acrylic acid on bamboo fiber using ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) as initiator in aqueous medium has been studied. Infrared (IR) spectroscopy was used to confirm the graft copolymer formation. Some effect factors on the graft reaction were also studied in detail. The optimal condition for grafting acrylic acid (AA) onto bamboo fiber was CAN 0.072 M, AA 10 g, HNO 0.0025 M, temperature 45o C and time 240 min.
The electrospinning technique for the scaffolds designing utilizes the electrostatic force for
the production of polymeric fiber ranging from nanoscale to microscale. This process is
control by high intensity electric field between two electrodes having electric charges of
opposite polarity. One electrode is placed in the polymer solution and other is placed in
collector. Generally polymer solution is pumped as result in forming a drop of solution.
