Printed organic electronic device components from edible materials

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The electrical and mechanical characteristics of ionic-covalent entanglement hydrogels consisting of combinations of the edible biopolymers gellan gum and gelatin were investigated. Impedance analysis and compression testing showed that these hydrogels (with water content = 97%) exhibited conductivity values of up to 13 mS/cm and compressive stress at failure values of up to 1.0 MPa. These are suitable characteristics for printed and mechanically robust wet device components.
