Integration of a patterned conductive carbon nanotube thin film with an insulating hydrophobic polymer carpet into robust 2D Janus hybrid flexible electronics

Abstract

Despite CNTs based flexible electronics showing promising applications in numerous fields, they are still weak against harsh environments. Herein, we present our recent advancement in the integration of patterned conductive CNTs thin films with an insulating hydrophobic polymer carpet into 2D Janus hybrid thin films for robust flexible electronics. Due to the introduction of the hydrophobic polymer as the water proof layer, our strategy could be considered as a new electronic packaging technique to protect conductive 2D CNTs thin films at a molecular level. The obtained polymer carpet grafted 2D CNTs thin films have potential application as flexible, transparent electronics with highly robust environmental stability.
