Abstract

Understanding the rate at which Nickel nanoparticles are grown could lead to further discoveries and developments regarding their use. Nickel nanofibers were electrospun using a dimethyformamide (DMF) and nickel salt solution and then oxidized and annealed at various time frames in order to obtain this understanding. These same fibers were then examined through X-Ray Diffraction, Transmission Electron Microscopy, and Scanning Electron Microscopy. From the research findings, there is a possibility that changing the oxidizing and annealing times may affect the particle size and growth, however this is only an assumption. Future work will involve measuring particle size and determining the number of polymer-bound, crystalline, and free nickel ions in the solution as well as when it is spun into fibers.

Keywords: electrospinning, dimethylformamide, biomimicry, nanofibers
