|Abstract(s):||The manufacture of three dimensional patterned electroactive poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-chlorotrifluoroethylene), P(VDF-CTFE), microstructures with tailored architecture, morphology and wettability is presented. The patterned microstructures are fabricated using a simple, effective, low cost and reproducible technique based on microfluidic technology. These novel structures can represent an innovative platform for advanced strategies in a wide range of biotechnological applications, including tissue engineering, drug delivery, microfluidic, and sensors and actuators devices.|
