Summary Two polymer solutions were brought together via a microfluidic device and subjected to an electrospinning process. The two polymer solutions flowed into the microfluidic channel side-by-side with very little intermixing due to their laminar nature. High speed stretching of the polymer solutions resulted in side-by-side bicomponent fibres. The electrospun nanofibres exhibited an extremely high propensity to self-crimp when an elastomeric polymer (polyurethane) and a normal polymer (polyacrylonitrile PAN) were involved in the electrospinning process. The formation of self-crimping fibre morphology was attributed to the differential shrinkage of the two polymers.
