Importance of different concentration parameter was evaluated in electrospinning of PAni.CSA/PEO Blends, The alignment nanofibers of this blends were successfully fabricated using electrospinning technique. Morphology and diameters of the nanofibers were studied by Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The diameter of nanfiber was about 40.49 nm (at 8 wt% PEO concentration) and increased with increasing concentration to 92.35 nm (at 30 wt% PEO concentration).  Structural characteristics of the electrospuning nanofibers and the formation of functional group of PEO polymer and the PAni.CSA were predicted by the FT-IR spectra. X-ray diffraction (XRD) showed crystalline peaks of the PAni.CSA/PEO blends. The PAni.CSA/PEO blends containing up to the 8 wt% PEO could be electrospun into the continuous fibers structure, although pure PAni.CSA solution was not able to be electrospuning into the fibrous structure.
