Abstract: Hydro active wound dressings provide a favorable wound-healing environment and promote wound closure. Currently, synthetic polymers are the material of choice for such dressings. However, capillary forces could also be envisioned as the operating principle. Therefore, we developed a bio-based material from nanofibers with tunable hierarchical pore structure. This ultralight nanofiber aerogels showed high water absorbency and it formed a mechanically stable hydrogel-like material. The range of applications of this versatile material can be extended to filtration, catalysis, or tissue engineering.
