Abstract

Regenerated wool keratin is a promising natural material for wound dressing. In the present study, keratin extracted from wool was blended with poly(butylene succinate) in 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol (blending ratio 50/50) and electrospun into nanofibrous mats. Compared to the pure poly(butylene succinate) nanofibres, the keratin based ones showed lower diameters, lower mechanical properties but an increased biodegradability, a delayed diclofenac release and increased bioactivity.

Keywords: wound dressing, drug delivery, keratin, electrospinning
