Deuteration of biopolymers in bionanocomposites 02/07/2018

Carbon nanotubes have been incorporated into a blend of deuterated biopolymers, allowing for electrical conductivity of the polymer film. These polymers have potential implications as scaffolds supporting regrowth of damaged tissues and electrical conductivity can promote the re-growth of nerve cells on similar materials.
