Abstract

In the present study, electrospinning of chitosan was evaluated by adding henna extract and producing nanofibers with restorative properties. Based on SEM images, it is confirmed that nanofibers with appreciate diameter and size distribution was produced by electrospinning of chitosan/ polyethylene oxide polymeric solution and henna extract. Superficial second-degree burn in the anesthetized rat was created by placing 80°C plate for a second in the back of a rat. The result of the study showed that adding henna extract in nanofibers lead to an effective response in the recovery of grade II burning.
