Article Preview

In this study, biocompatible polymer poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO), gelation (denatured collagen) and nanometer silver colloid was added to the electrospinnning solution of alginate sodium to get anti-bacterial nanofiber mats. The morphology and mechanical properties of the electrospun mats have been investigated. Smooth fibers with diameters around 300 nm were obtained from 4.0 % solutions of varied alginate/PEO/gelation proportion. The anti-water property of the electrospun mats has been improved by crosslink with glutaraldehyde acetone solution and aqueous calcium chloride and ethanol.
