General description

Sheet resistance, spin cast thin films: 10,000-50,000 Ohms/sq

Average transmittance: 70-90%

Biodegradble conducting polymer for bomedical applications. PCL diol blocks have average molecular weight 2000 and PPy block have an average molecular weight of 4000 with a 25% doping level. Good biocompatibility with expected weight loss of 40% at 200 days in pH=7 buffer.

Application

Thin films can be prepared by spin casting the nitromethane dispersion at 1000 rpm. Thicker and more conducting films can be prepared by air spraying the dispersion on a substrate. Sprayed films can be dried at 30-40 °C, then pressed between two polished dye plates at 1000-10,000 psi to increase film density, strength and scratch resistance.

Features and Benefits

The block copolymer structure renders the conducting polymer polypyrrole dispersible in organic solvents and biodegradable.

Caution

Store this product at room temperature (do not refrigerate or freeze). Severe settling and separation will normally occur. Agitate, sonicate, and filter prior to use. A plug of glass wool in a pipette can be used for easy filtration. The shelf life of this product will vary depending on how it is stored and handled. Product should be discarded if heavy aggregation occurs, or if sonication / filtering are inadequate to produce a good casting solution. When spray coating is used, the user should take every precaution necessarily to prevent exposure to solvent vapors from this product

Other Notes

Will settle over time. Must be sonicated before use

Optoelectronic Devices Based on Diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP)-containing Conjugated Small Molecules

Dr. Tan and researcher introduce recent trends in Self-healing Soft Electronic Materials and Devices. The emergence of smart, functional SHPs will be highly beneficial to the advancement of the next-generation self-healing soft electronic devices. Autonomously self-healing devices could help to minimize the need for repair or replacement of electronics and machines, potentially reducing the cost of materials and reducing electronic waste.

While dye sensitization as the basis for color photography has been accepted for a very long time,1 attempts to use this principle for the conversion of solar light to electricity generally had resulted only in very low photocurrents, below 100 nA/cm
