Paper Title:
Crosslinked Gelatin Nanofibers and their Potential for Tissue Engineering
  Abstract

Gelatin nanofibers were obtained by the use of TFE/deionized water co-solvent system without adding any other fiber forming material. The diameter of nanofibers was in the rage from 200 to 360 nm. The water-resistant ability and mechanical properties of electrospun gelatin nanofibers were improved by crosslinking in GTA or FA vapor, which increased with crosslinking time. Cytotoxicity evaluation indicates that the crosslinked gelatin membranes support the proliferation of human dermal fibroblast.
