Electrospinning is a commonly used and versatile method to produce scaffolds (often biodegradable) for 3D tissue engineering.(1, 2, 3) Many tissues in vivo undergo biaxial distension to varying extents such as skin, bladder, pelvic floor and even the hard palate as children grow. In producing scaffolds for these purposes there is a need to develop scaffolds(More)
Polymer vesicles are self-assembled shells of amphiphilic block copolymers (BCPs) that have attracted tremendous interest due to their encapsulation ability and intracellular delivery of therapeutic agents. However, typical processes for the formation of polymer vesicles lead to ensembles of structures with a broad size distribution (from nanometer to(More)
Polymer beads have attracted considerable interest for use in catalysis, drug delivery, and photonics due to their particular shape and surface morphology. Electrospinning, typically used for producing nanofibers, can also be used to fabricate polymer beads if the solution has a sufficiently low concentration. In this work, a novel approach for producing(More)
Crystallization of polymer chains confined on a surface greatly influences surface properties. We have grafted comb-like copolymer, consisting of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) backbone and semicrystalline poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) side chains, on silicon surface and investigated the crystallization of such confined PCL chains upon solvent(More)
