New Cost-Effective Polymer Coating Method Leads To High-Performance Conductive Materials For Flexible Electronics

Plastics are polymers consisting of large molecules with long repeating chains of organic units. They offer the possibility of molecular design through chemical synthesis, good scalability, and low-cost potential, but their surface remains essentially inert, exhibiting very low electrical conductivity. This has marked them for many years in electronic applications as organic insulating materials. There is, though, an emerging technology focused on the development of electronic devices incorporating plastics and opening prospects for flexible electronics that go beyond the Silicon...
