Paper Title:
Gas-Electrospun Degradable PEG/PBT-HA: Potential Scaffold for Tissue Engineering
  Abstract

In this work, the composite nanofibers of polybutylene terephthalate/polyethylene glycol (PEG/PBT) with difference intrinsic viscosity and different ratio of the hard-segment to the soft-segment were obtained by gas-electrospun. The PEG/PBT-HA composite nanofibers were also obtained by gas-electrospun. PEG/PBT and PEG/PBT-HA composite nanofibers were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), horizontal attenuated total reflectance for Fourier transformation infra-red spectrometer (HATR-FTIR), dynamic contact angle measurement and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results strongly suggest that this synthetic matrix combines with the advantages of synthetic biodegradable polymers, nanometer-scale dimension mimicking the natural ECM, may represent an ideal tissue engineering scaffold, especially for soft tissue, such as skin and cartilage tissue engineering scaffold.
