Melt Electrowriting of a Photo-Crosslinkable Poly(ε-caprolactone)-Based Material into Tubular Constructs with Predefined Architecture and Tunable Mechanical Properties

Front Cover: Melt electrowriting (MEW) is a novel additive manufacturing technique currently limited by the material selection. The cover image, by Tomasz Jungst and co-workers in article number 2200097, depicts a construct made during the approach to establish new materials for MEW based on an acrylate-endcapped urethane-based polymer (AUP). Blending AUP with the gold-standard material in MEW, poly-(ε-caprolacton), enables tailoring mechanical properties of constructs via photo-crosslinking.
