In this study, polyacrylonitrile (PAN) nanofibers containing sepiolite needle-like nanoparticles were produced with electrospinning method. PAN polymer solution concentration was fixed at 12 wt% and sepiolite nanoparticle concentration was varied. Electrospinning solutions were prepared with sepiolite nanoparticles concentrations of 0, 1, 3 and 10 % of the mass of the PAN polymer. The effect of the sepiolite nanoparticle concentration on thermal, morphological and mechanical properties of nanofibers were studied.
