In this study, a solution of dibutyrylchitin (DBC)/polylactide (PLA) blend micro and nanofibres were successfully fabricated using blends of 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol (TFE) as solvents. Fibres were produced from the solutions by electrospinning. The DBC/PLA blend solutions in various ratios were studied for electrospinning into micro/nanofibres. The morphology of the micro and nanofibres was observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The biggest diameters of DBC/PLA fibres were obtained for the blended microfibres in ratios of 10/90 and 25/75. The smallest diameter was observed for pure polymers. The antibacterial properties were examined for materials obtained by electrospinning. In the experiments, materials with antibacterial properties were made. It is likely that the electrospun micro and nanofibres will be used in the native extracellular matrix for tissue engineering.
