Publication Date



This work reports a printing technique for patterning a conducting polymer nanowire network on a flexible film for applications in chemical sensing. The novelty of this work is in the patterning capability of polymer nanowires to form a conducting path. Polyaniline nanowires were chemically synthesized in an aqueous solution and a surfactant was added to lower the surface tension which enabled the printing of the nanowires using a commercial inkjet printer. The printed device was tested as a chemiresistive sensor to detect pH and hydrogen peroxide concentration.
