Electrochemistry-based smart biodevices

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Engineering the interfacial contact between device materials and biological systems (body, tissue, cell, and protein) is of central importance to the advancement of bioelectronic devices. Here, novel possibilities of electrochemical techniques for creation of smart biodevices are discussed. Three original techniques for biocompatible interfacing will be described: (1) the electrochemical biolithography for spatiotemporal control of protein adsorption and cell adhesion even inside a microfluidic channel; (2) the hydrogel-based biocompatible electrodes prepared by electrochemical polymerization of conducting polymers; (3) the high performance enzyme electrodes made of engineered nanocarbon materials. These varieties of novel electrochemical techniques have been utilized for creating smart devices, such as on-demand biochip, contractile biochip, and self-powered biosensors and medical patches.
