Table 1 Average fiber diameter, hydrophilicity and mechanical properties of electrospun PCL and collagen/PCL fibrous meshes

From: Sciatic nerve regeneration in rats by a promising electrospun collagen/poly(ε-caprolactone) nerve conduit with tailored degradation rate

Electrospun fibrous meshes (n = 3) Fiber diameter (nm) Water contact angle (°) Tensile properties
