Author Affiliations +
In recent years, regenerated cellulose has received much attention due to its huge industrial potentials and its feasibility for many industrial applications such as sensors and actuators. However, due to its insulating property, few results used for potential electronic applications have been reported. By modification of cellulose itself, nano-sized electrical inner paths can be formed by chemical bonding of metallic or semiconducting nanowires to cellulose fibrils during regenerated process. Already our earlier result of the chemical bonding between carbon nanotubes and the regenerated cellulose has been reported as a novel electronic material for potential paper transistor. In this paper, we study the cellulose-gold nanowire (GNW) composite for electronic application due to its huge potential for paper transistor and other applications such as biosensors and strain sensors due to its electrical response sensitivity. The detailed material properties of GNW cellulose composite and its potential for electrical applications will be demonstrated.
