Abstract Nanofbers (NFs) have been widely used in tissue engineering such as wound healing. In this work, the antibacterial ZnO quantum dots (ZnO QDs) have been incorporated into the biocompatible poly (ε-caprolactone)/collagen (PCL/Col) fbrous scafolds for wound healing. The as-fabricated PCL-Col/ZnO fbrous scafolds exhibited good swelling, antibacterial activity, and biodegradation behaviors, which were benefcial for the applications as a wound dressing. Moreover, the PCL-Col/ZnO fbrous scafolds showed excellent cytocompatibility for promoting cell proliferation. The resultant PCL-Col/ZnO fbrous scafolds containing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) also exhibited promoted wound-healing efect through promoting expression of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) and the vascular factor (CD31) in tissues in the early stages of wound healing. This new electrospun fbrous scafolds with wound-healing promotion and antibacterial property should be convenient for treating wound healing.
