Using electrospinning we were able to prepare wound dressings with antimicrobial action thanks to their large surface per volume ratio, which allows their loading with therapeutic amounts of active principles. By nuclear magnetic resonance we demonstrated that the antimicrobial compounds are donors of hydrogen bonds to the ester functional group in PCL, which acts as acceptor and that intermolecular interaction is responsible for the high drug loading achieved.
