AbstractA polymer nanofiber scaffold that includes any number of melt extruded nanofibers that are chemically modified to append surface functionality to the nanofibers. Advantages of co-extruded fibers include the ability to process continuously without solvents in controllable dimensions, for instance, as a rectangular shape with much greater surface area and volume than typical "patches" used for drug delivery and wound healing applications. In addition to numerous applications in tissue engineering, other uses include chemical processing, nanoelectronics, fabrics, and filtration. The nanofiber scaffold may incorporate various click-reactive functional groups that may react with bioactive or therapeutic agents such as catalysts, peptides, or small molecules.
