Fabrication of Biocompatible Electro-conductive Silk Films with Natural Compounds for Tissue Engineering Applications.

Dimitrakakis, Nikolaos.

Abstract: In the present study electro conductive natural compounds are incorporated in silk based films, and the effects on film conductivity and dissolution are studied. Natural conducting compounds melanin and riboflavin were blended with silk to increase conductivity. Other compounds such as Fe(0) powder ferrofluid and NaCl solution also improved conductivity. Film properties and dissolution w... read more
