anostructured materials based on aromatic heterocyclic

polymers, polyheteroarylenes (PHA) are now widely

common in photovoltaics, membrane technologies, sensor

and electrochemical devices, etc. New PHAs convertible by

electrospinning to nanofiber mats are demanded on modern state

of nanotechnology for example as highperformance carbonaceous

material of gas diffusion electrodes (GDE) for hydrogen-air polymer

electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). The spinnability of

polyheteroarylenes was not a subject of large investigations. The

process of PHA electrospinning is a very challenging task. There


material certainly. Failing to find a right set of electrospinning

conditions may lead to the impossibility of nanofiber formation.

Hence, many parameters of the electrospinning process should

be found empirically, which in some cases is a long and routine

process. Only few papers describe nanofiber materials based on

some polyimides, m-polybenzimidazole (m-PBI) and semi-ladder

PIM-1 obtained only on so called “needle” setups. Elmarco’s first

“needle-free” electrospinning equipment Nanospider™ is proved

by industrial operation; a technology based on spinning from

a free liquid surface. Needle-free process guarantees optimal

distance between Taylor cones, excellent web and fiber uniformity,

simplicity of design, robustness against clogging of a spinneret,

increased productivity due to the simultaneous operation of

numerous jets. The lecture will be devoted to the production

of new high-tech PHAs nanofibers and non-woven materials

eminently suitable for electrochemical applications.
