In this study, CA fibers were fabricated using electrospinning technique with the mixture of acetic acid/acetone as the solvent system with the ratio of 3:1. The morphological structure of the fibers obtained was observed using scanning electron microscope (SEM). The SEM results showed that 10% of CA produced beads only, 12% of CA produced spindle beads with few fibers, 13% of CA produced fibers with few beads and 14% w/v concentration of CA produced continuous and smooth ribbon-like fibers with average diameter of 199.23nm.
