Nanofibers are widely used in various fields, including water filtration. In the development of nanofibers as water filtration, a mixture of carbon in a polymer solution is often used. Nanofibers can be made by several methods such as multicomponent fiber spinning techniques, melt blowing, electrospinning. Electrospinning is currently a simple development method but can produce nanofibers with a small fiber diameter, it is easy to develop and many parameters can be controlled. Parameters that affect the results of the nanofibers that are formed include flow rate or syringe pump flow rate and high voltage dc high voltage. Various types of nanofibers can be produced from various types of polymers, both natural polymers and synthetic polymers. Generally, because they have properties and characteristics such as high surface area, small pore size, and the possibility to be developed in various applications. Therefore, this chapter discusses the electrospinning of carbon nanofibers using PVA polymer.
