Nanofibrous membrane (NFM) of PVDF blended with Al doped nanoZnO was successfully fabricated through electro spinning process. In the present study, the Al doped nanoZnO was synthesized through Sol-gel (SG) route utilizing starch as a stabilizing agent and analyzed by x-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy dispersive X-ray (EDAX) analysis. Then Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) was utilized to characterize the membrane, and it was found that a stabilized morphology with a size of 300 to 400 nm. Hydrophobic PVDF membrane with a contact angle (CA) 124.700 was prepared by electrospinning of nanoZnO blended PVDF. The CA investigational outcomes of PVDF-ZnO blended membranes demonstrated an enhancement of hydrophilicity with nano ZnO.
