The next polymer to be investigated was a biodegradable polyurethane (PU). The PU was electrospun into isotropic mats (ES-PU) and the material properties were evaluated via GPC, DSC, and Raman spectroscopy before and after processing. These analyses showed that the polymer was also unaffected by the electrospinning process. Additionally, the degradation profile of ES-PU in the presence of chymotrypsin was assessed. It was concluded that ES-PU mats show potential for use in soft tissue engineering applications.Murry, C.E., R.W. Wiseman, S.M. Schwartz, and S.D.
