The biodegradable polylactide/poly(ethylene glycol) (PLA/PEG) hybrid membranes were fabricated via electrospinning of PLA/PEG solution. Their structures and properties were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and water contact angle. In vitro hydrolytic degradation showed that PEG content influenced the degradation rate of the PLA/PEG hybrid mats. The mechanical property was measured by tensile test and the result revealed that the addition of PEG… CONTINUE READING
