Abstract

Electrospinning provides a simple, rapid, and inexpensive way to produce nano/microscaled polymer fibers using electrostatic force.1-4 Electrospun products have been widely employed in areas such as high-performance filters,5 high-surface-area electrodes,6 and fiber templates.7 Recently, electrospinning of nanofibrous polymer scaffolds for tissue engineering applications has attracted attention. A biodegradable poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) material containing chitin was electrospun from hexafluoro propanol and formic acid solution.8Others have electrospun chitosan fibers from trifluoroacetic acid solutions9 and aliphatic polyesters (such as poly(ε-caprolactone)) from methylene chloride and dimethyl formamide.10In the quest for biocompatible/bioresorbable, electrospinning has been used to produce nanostructured dextran membranes.11
