Recent advances in organic electronics have made available materials with a unique combination of attractive properties, including mechanical flexibility, mixed ionic/electronic conduction, and enhanced biocompatibility. These materials are currently being used in a variety of biological interfacing applications including neural prosthesis, tissue engineering, diagnostics, and drug delivery. Using these applications as examples, I will show how structure, electrical, and biological properties of organic electronic materials can be tuned to improve device performance.
