An erodible polythiophene-based composite for biomedical applications

Journal Article


Abstract


  • We report here the design of a novel conducting erodible platform based on the water soluble conducting polymer, poly[ammonium(3-thienyl) ethoxypropanesulfonate] (SPT). This study shows for the first time a conducting polymeric system that is electroactive, fully erodible and promotes cell adhesion and growth.
