Aligned and molecularly oriented Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) nanofibers were prepared using a non-conventional approach. Various take up velocity of rotating drum was examined for increasing of productivity, alignment and mechanical properties of nanofibers. Impressive techniques like Raman spectroscopy were utilized for characterization of nanofibers.
