In the last decade, significant progress in tissue engineering, repairing, and replacing organs has been achieved. The design and production of scaffolds for tissue engineering are one of the main areas which have attracted the researcher's interest. In this regard, electrospinning is one of the most popular methods of nanoscale scaffold similar to extracellular matrix production. This paper reports the fabrication of scaffolds consisting of radially aligned PCL nanofibers by utilizing a collector composed of a central point electrode and a peripheral ring electrode. The chemical and physical properties were compared using SEM, FTIR, XRD, and DSC experiments, as well as biological performance using the MTT method and cell morphology with nanofibers with random and unidirectionally morphology. Results of this study showed greater physical and biological properties for radially aligned nanofibers which make them an excellent candidate for wound healing applications due to the guided cell growth on this type of nanofiber.
