Nowadays, nanotechnologies are of great interest in many areas of research and textile materials are also the ones that are getting more and more involved into it. Recently reasearches have started to concentrate on the insertion of different nanoparticles into polymeric structures and also on integrating fibrous nanostructures into more complicated systems. The aim of our research was to embed copper (Cu) nanoparticles into a nanofibrous structure via a sophisticated electrospinning technique. SEM and EDS techniques were used in order to evaluate the results of the experiments performed: the quality of the nanofibrous structure and the distribution of nanoparticles inside the fibres. Results showed that we succeeded in embedding Cu nanoparticles into polymeric nanofibres, despite the latter having formed when the polymer was moving upwards and the electric field between the electrodes in the electrospinning device was strong.
