Wound is defined as the cessation of the structural and functional function of living tissue as a result of the deterioration of the entire skin for various reasons. Wound treatment started with the history of humanity. The main purpose of wound treatment; It is to restore the deteriorated skin structure and functional properties by providing tissue repair as soon as possible. For this reason, there are many different techniques in wound treatment today. Natural compounds with anthraquinone are used in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, cosmetics, bio and nanomaterials [1]. By attaching bioactive groups to compounds with an anthraquinone skeleton in the laboratory environment, the molecule can be made more active, and thus, targeted, active molecules that can be used in treatments and that have various biological activity properties can be obtained by organic synthesis method. By adding anthraquinone to polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) polymer, nanocomposite mat production will be provided by nanotechnological electrospinning technique. The material properties will be determined by morphological (Scanning Electron Microscopy-SEM) and mechanical (TENSILE) analysis of the produced nanocomposites. It is thought that nanofiber-wound dressing tapes containing original anthraquinone analogues will provide a new perspective for studies in the health sector and biomaterials in the future
