Abstract

In this paper, a multifunctional wound dressing with sustained-release and antibacterial properties was prepared using cellulose acetate (CA) as the matrix and Dimethyloxallyl Glycine (DMOG) and silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) as the drug loading component. The scanning electron microscopy shows that the microstructure of the nanofibers is uniform and droplet free, and the diameters of CA and CA/β-CD/DMOG nanofibers are mainly concentrated in the range of 40–120 nm, and the diameters of CA/DMOG/Ag-NPs nanofibers are mainly concentrated in the range of 120–200 nm. In vitro release test confirms that the CA/DMOG/Ag-NPs nanofiber can slowly release DMOG within about 84 h, which abides by a typical diffusion, and the main driving force is the concentration gradient between the drug-carrying nanofibers and the releasing medium. The antibacterial performance test demonstrates that the material exhibits obvious antibacterial performance against both E. coli and B.subtilis bacteria with little adverse effects on cell viability proved by cell compatibility test. Taken together, CA/DMOG/Ag-NPs can be a wound dressing material with good application prospects to promote the healing of diabetic wounds.
