Abstract

Wormlike micelles of phospholipids were recently electrospun into ultraporous, high surface area fibrous membranes. These biologically-derived materials offer many potential applications, such as cell growth scaffolds, purification membranes, and drug-delivery platforms. Future work in tailoring the electrospinning process and phospholipid properties is expected to create new durable, biofunctional materials. These initial efforts have introduced the concept of low molar mass amphiphiles as precursors of biocompatible fibers through solution electrospinning.
