The Progress in Research on Silk Fibroin Blend Membranes
Silk fibroin film, which has good biological compatibility, is suitable for use as biomaterials and medical materials. However, silk fibroin film in dry state is too brittle to be used by itself. Blending with other natural or synthetic polymers could improve the poor mechanical properties of silk fibroin film. In this paper, recent researches in blend film of silk fibroin and their application were summarized.
