Title: Photocrosslinked Immobilization of Polyelectrolytes for Template Assisted Enzymatic Polymerization of Conjugated Polymers
Growing demand in consumer electronics raises the need for efficient, affordable, environmentally benign and biodegradable substitutes for current technologies. Printed circuit boards contain heavy metals such as antimony, silver, chromium, zinc, lead, tin and copper. Researchers addressed the need for environmentally friendly technologies to manufacture printed circuit boards by using a biodegradable, nontoxic material for the template.
