The incorporation of drugs into the dressings make these dressings antimicrobial and help in control of infection around the wound. The wound dressing materials based on PVA/PAA, ciprofloxacin HCl, and aloe vera have been designed and developed so that the wound undergoes proper healing and scar formation is minimal. These wound dressing materials are produced using the electrospinning method. The wound dressing materials are characterized using the FT-IR, DSC, DTA, TGA, and SEM techniques. The wound dressing materials are tested for microbial activity tests and drug release experiments. Controlled ciprofloxacin HCl release is observed.
