Modular Approach toward Bioactive Fiber Meshes Carrying Oligosaccharides

Macromolecules of Raffi Gentsch published [DOI: 10.1021/ma101607a]
In a single step, polymer nanofibers with pentafluorophenyl (Pfp) activated esters at the surface are fabricated by electrospinning of either pure poly(pentafluorophenyl methacrylate) (PPfpMA) or PPfpMA / poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) blends which can be successfully functionalized with amino-functional biomolecules like saccharides for immune response.
