Surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP) is a very convenient complement to electrospinning; it can proceed under mild and mostly aqueous conditions and produce surface layers with a thickness controlled (e.g., through polymerization time, solvent, and monomer mixture) from a few to a few hundreds of nanometers. The effectiveness of this method in modulating the surface properties (charge, wettability) of PLLA fibers is demonstrated.
