Manipulation of viscous all-aqueous jets by electrical charging

, : Manipulation of viscous all-aqueous jets by electrical charging. Chemical Communications 49(17): 1726-1728

We demonstrate the manipulation of viscous all-aqueous jets by electrical charging. At sufficiently high voltages, the folding of an uncharged viscous jet is suppressed, and the jet diameter can be adjusted by varying the applied voltage or the fluid flow rates. This inspires new ways to fabricate biocompatible fibers.
