Paper Abstract

Significant opportunities exist for the processing of synthetic and biological polymers using electric field (electroprocessing). We review casting of multi-component films and the spinning of fibers in electric fields, and indicate opportunities for the creation of smart polymer systems using these approaches. Applications include 2D substrates for cell growth and diagnostics, scaffolds for tissue engineering and repair, and electromechanically active biosystems.
