Anisotropic microstructures are utilized in various fields owing to their unique properties, such as reversible shape transitions or on-demand and sequential release of drug combinations. In this study, anisotropic multicompartmental microfibers composed of different polymers are prepared via charge reversal electrohydrodynamic (EHD) co-jetting. The combination of various polymers, such as thermoplastic polyurethane, poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide), poly(vinyl cinnamate), and poly(methyl methacrylate), results in microfibers with distinct compositional boundaries.
