Conducting polymers – bridging the bionic interface

Author affiliations


Inherently conducting polymers (ICPs) such as polypyrroles, polythiophenes and polyanilines have become commonplace in today's materials research laboratories. However, the most intriguing aspect of these materials – the ability to electronically control a range of physical and chemical properties – remains an area of intense and intriguing research activity. As we understand more of this behaviour, we have turned our attention to a range of areas in which it can be utilised. Perhaps the most challenging of these areas is in bridging the bionic interface, providing a more effective conduit between electronics and biology.
