This work describes a unique way to produce hollow fiber membranes using the electrospinning process. Today the smallest diameters of the hollow fiber membranes are around 80-100 μm. In our work we focused on producing hollow fibers membranes with diameter less than 15 μm. This may increase the pressure drop due to flow but presents high surface area. Smaller fibers mean more fiber surface area per unit volume of equipment, thus increasing the total surface area, which will likely cause an improvement in separation.
