Effective wound management and tissue repair is of significant importance for our increasingly ageing population. The aims of this research were to develop natural polymeric nanofibrous materials and investigate their potential for use in wound dressings and tissue engineering scaffolds; the enhanced performance of which, will improve patient comfort and recovery. This work has focused on the fabrication of alginate nanofibrous materials by electrospinning.
