Functionalization of electrospun PLA fibers using amphiphilic block copolymers for use in carboxy-methyl-cellulose hydrogel composites

Carboxy-methyl-cellulose (CMC) hydrogels, prepared in the presence of a crosslinker and photoinitiator, were reinforced with 3.7 wt% electrospun PLA fibers to create CMC hydrogel composites. To improve fiber-matrix adhesion, electrospun fiber mats based on hybrids of PLA and amphiphilic block copoly...
