Design, fabrication and characterization of PCL electrospun scaffolds—a review
Cipitria, A., Skelton, A., Dargaville, T.R., Dalton, P.D., & Hutmacher, D.W. (2011) Design, fabrication and characterization of PCL electrospun scaffolds—a review. Journal of Materials Chemistry, 21, pp. 9419-9453.
The expanding interest in electrospinning fibers for bioengineering includes a significant use of polyesters, including poly(3-caprolactone) (PCL). This review summarizes literature on PCL and selected blends, and provides extensive descriptions of the broad range of parameters used in manufacturing such electrospun fibers. Furthermore the chemical, physical and biological approaches for characterizing the electrospun material are described and opinions offered on important information to include in future publications with this electrospun material.
