SEM images of as-spun (a) and autoclaved SELP-47K nanofibers (b). Scale bars: 5 μm.
The FSD FTIR amide I spectra of SELP-47K as-spun nanofibers and nanofibers autoclaved for specific times (i.e., 15, 30, and 60 min) were fitted with Gaussian band profiles. The solid line and dots represent the FSD amide I spectra and the fitted curves, respectively.
(a) Representative mechanical preconditioning behavior of autoclaved SELP-47K nanofibrous scaffolds. (b) Resilience of autoclaved SELP-47K nanofibrous scaffold as a function of the number of preconditioning cycles. Data and error bars represent measurements conducted on five replicate samples.
Percentages of secondary structure as determined by curve fitting the FSD amide I bands of SELP-47K nanofibers.
