Polyelectrolyte fibers are rather attractive in applications like tissue engineering, drug delivery and bio-sensing. The unique mechanism of formation (IPC) makes these fibers amenable to encapsulation and functionalization. In this work, we investigate how micro-fibers work in the encapsulation and functionalization of enzymes by a one-step green spinning process. To be precise, the work consists of fabricating micro-fibers in a printed nozzle, encapsulating enzymes into fibers, followed by fiber characterization and enzyme characterization.
