Protein-based polymers as the active layer in electronic devices



Chemistry and Materials | Medical Devices | Sustainability and Energy

The Technology

Using sustainable and affordable proteins as the basis for the formation of a new family of environmental polymers that are free-standing, soft, elastic, and most importantly, their electronic and ionic conductivity can be engineered. A special focus is given to the use of proteins from waste sources to promote their circular economy, and to the formation strategy of the polymers, adopting the concepts of Green Chemistry, resulting in the ability to create polymers on the large scales.
