Electrospun mats of aligned polymer fibers have various advantages for applications such as filters, fabrics, sensors, wound dressings, and vascular grafts. Electrospinning of a family of polyisobutylene-based thermoplastic polyurethanes yields mats of nanofibers with physical and mechanical properties well suited for biomedical applications. Electrospinning leads to orientation of the polymer chains resulting in high-temperature endotherms. Electrospun porous fiber mats show excellent tensile properties, minimal creep, and high adsorption of blood serum proteins.
