Electrospinning is used to produce polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) nanofibers under various the ferric chloride (FeCl3) contents. The effect of FeCl3 concentration on fiber diameter is investigated theoretically and experimentally. A critical value of the concentration is found, below which fiber diameter decreases with its concentration, and an opposite prediction is observed when the concentration is larger than the critical value.
