Electrospinning is a method that can be use to prepare polymeric or composite fibres having diameters typically in a sub-micron range. In this work carbon nanotubes are introduced into solution of polyacrylonitrile for electrospinning. Properties of composite fibres are studied and possible applications of such composite fibres are discussed.
