Plasma treatment has been widely applied to improve the hydrophilic properties of hydrophobic materials used in the field of tissue engineering, in particular for scaffold fabrication. The purpose of this treatment is to functionalize the scaffolds by generating polar groups on their surfaces without affecting the bulk whilst reducing their hydrophobic properties that could enhance cell adhesion and biocompatibility . Our aim was to evaluate the effect of Cold Atmospheric Plasma (CAP) on physical and chemical properties of electrospun PLGA microfibers by varying the treatment distance and time.
