N-type semiconducting molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) nanoparticles embedded in polyethylene oxide (PEO) polymer ultra-fine fibres were deposited directly onto silicon substrates using an electrospinning technique. The effects of different MoO3/PEO concentrations as well as electrospinning parameters on the fibre morphologies were examined. Experimental results show that embedding nanoparticles and electrospinning onto small areas can be achieved without use of solvents or transfer of the deposited nanostructures. This approach offers a cost effective fabrication method to produce a diverse range of multifunctional materials for many applications including electronics, mechanical enhancement, drug delivery and gas sensing.

2 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
