A water-soluble eumelanin polymer with typical polyelectrolyte behaviour by triethyleneglycol N-functionalization

Author affiliations

Abstract

N-functionalization of 5,6-dihydroxyindole with a hydrophilic triethyleneglycol (TEG) chain provides access to a new class of water-soluble eumelanin-like materials with relatively high dielectric constant and polyelectrolyte behaviour, reflecting enhanced charge transport by in-depth incorporation of hydration networks.
