Conducting polymer nanosheet

What is it about?

Fabrication and release of an ultra-thin yet robust nanofilm of conducting polymer with large area that can be used as free-standing conductor nanomembrane or easily transferred on any substrate (rigid or soft, with arbitrary complex surface roughness, topography, shape), to which it adheres conformally.

Why is it important?

Such work describes for the first time a way to obtain free-standing nanosheets of conducting polymers. The water-release based method allows for easy and safe transfer of nanosheets also on skin or biological samples. The nanosheet, despite it is ultra-thin, is able to retain integrity and functional properties (electronic/ionic conduction both in wet and dry conditions) also after transfer on target surfaces.
