A polysaccharide bioprotonic field-effect transistor.

From these plots, it is clear that, for a negative Vgs, the proton density is drastically increased at the polysaccharide—dielectric interface to form a highly conducting region. This was done to ensure that the measured device current was from the maleic—chitosan channel and not from water condensed on the top of the SiO2.

In living systems, electrical signals are communicated and processed by modulating ionic6 and protonic currents7. Enhanced thermal and mechanical properties of. Measurements using hydrogen-depleted Pd or Au contacts—both proton blocking—record a considerably smaller current Supplementary Fig. To calculate the gate capacitance, we first obtained the interface charge at different gate biases; whereas the two other contacts were kept at zero bias.

We have assumed the contacts to be completely proton transparent.

Mobility was varied to fit the data. Photolithography and lift-off was used to define the contacts. CiteULike is a free online bibliography manager. Measurements performed on a thicker device show a significantly smaller Ids modulation from Vgs, as predicted by our description Supplementary Fig. Search all the public and authenticated articles in CiteULike.

A polysaccharide bioprotonic field-effect transistor ARTICLE Chao Zhong , Yingxin Deng

Recently, conducting polymer ion bipolar junction transistor devices have been demonstrated25, B 19, — Nipun MisraJulio A. This study introduces a new class of biocompatible solid-state devices, which can control and monitor the flow of polysaccuaride current. Here we report the first demonstration of a biopolymer protonic field-effect transistor with pilysaccharide PdH x polysacchaaride.

In maleic—chitosan, we propose that the protons responsible for the current as hydronium ions in the HBC originate from the polysaccharide maleic acid groups, some of which are deprotonated Fig. This suggests that highly efficient proton wires are formed in the material.

Increase in protonic conductivity with hydration level is common in other biological macromolecules such as collagen29, cellulose30 and keratin Correspondence and requests for materials should be addressed to M.

These opportunities include biomedical applications where protonic currents are important such as the in-vivo study and stimulation of proton selective ion-channels. The data in Figure 3b corroborates this description.
