Summary Aligned nanofiber mats were prepared from cellulose acetate using an electrospinning technique. The nanofiber mats were then immersed in an ethanol/acetone mixture. The solvent treatment led to denser, more compact fibrous structure and slight decrease in fiber alignment. It increased fiber diameter and polymer crystallinity within fibers. These effects resulted in increase in the tensile strength of fibrous mats. Solvent treatment may offer a simple, efficient approach to improve the mechanical strength of nanofibrous mats.
