Biocompatible MWCNT scaffolds for immobilization and proliferation of E. coli

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ultralightweight (specific gravity 8.0 × 10–2) and highly conductive (1.4 S cm–1) MWCNT scaffolds exhibited remarkable biocompatibility for E. coli which allows for bacteria immobilization and proliferation within its microchanneled structure. The above-mentioned features make these scaffolds potentially useful as electrodes in microbial fuel cells (MFCs).
