Preparation of PVA/PAA/PEG/PVP Nanofibers with HPMC and Aloe Vera
PVA/PAA/PEG/PVP nanofibers with HPMC and aloe vera were fabricated by electrospinning method. HPMC was added to
the hybrid polymer solution as the water retention agent and aloe vera which are known over centuries were also added to the system to
promote the healing of wounded or infected skin. The fabricated nanofiber mats were characterized using SEM, DSC, and FT-IR. SEM
Images exhibited that the electrospun nanofibers were homogenous and linear. The nanofiber diameters ranged between 80-480 nm.
Keywords: Aloe vera, electrospinning, HPMC, nanofiber, PVA, wound dressing.
