Tailoring Conducting Polymer Interface for Sensing and Biosensing Book Review:

The routine measurement of signi?cant physiological and biochemical parameters has become increasingly important for health monitoring especially in the cases of elderly people, infants, patients with chronic diseases, athletes and soldiers etc. Monitoring is used to assess both physical fitness level and for disease diagnosis and treatment. Considerable attention has been paid to electrochemical sensors and biosensors as point-of-care diagnostic devices for healthcare management because of their fast response, low-cost, high specificity and ease of operation. The analytical performance of such devices is significantly driven by the high-quality sensing interface, involving signal transduction at the transducer interface and efficient coupling of biomolecules at the transducer bio-interface for specific analyte recognition. The discovery of functional and structured materials, such as metallic and carbon nanomaterials (e.g. gold and graphene), has facilitated the construction of high-performance transducer interfaces which benefit from their unique physicochemical properties. Further exploration of advanced materials remains highly attractive to achieve well-designed and tailored interfaces for electrochemical sensing and biosensing driven by the emerging needs and demands of the “Internet of Things” and wearable sensors. Conducting polymers (CPs) are emerging functional polymers with extraordinary redox reversibility, electronic/ionic conductivity and mechanical properties, and show considerable potential as a transducer material in sensing and biosensing. While the intrinsic electrocatalytic property of the CPs is limited, especially for the bulk polymer, tailoring of CPs with controlled structure and efficient dopants could improve the electrochemical performance of a transducer interface by delivering a larger surface area and enhanced electrocatalytic property. In addition, the rich synthetic chemistry of CPs endows them with versatile functional groups to modulate the interfacial properties of the polymer for effective biomolecule coupling, thus bridging organic electronics and bioelectrochemistry. Moreover, the soft-material characteristics of CPs enable their use for the development of flexible and wearable sensing platforms which are inexpensive and light-weight, compared to conventional rigid materials, such as carbons, metals and semiconductors. This thesis focuses on the exploration of CPs for electrochemical sensing and biosensing with improved sensitivity, selectivity and stability by tailoring CP interfaces at different levels, including the CP-based transduction interface, CP-based bio-interface and CP-based device interface. First, we demonstrate different strategies for tailoring the physicochemical properties of poly (3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) beyond its intrinsic properties, via charge effects, structural effects and by the use of hybrid materials, as a CP-based transduction interface to improve sensing performance of various analytes. 1) A positively-charged PEDOT interface, and a negatively-charged carboxylic-acid-functionalised PEDOT (PEDOT:COOH) interface were developed to modulate the electrode kinetics for oppositely-charged analytes, e.g. negatively-charged nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) and positively-charged dopamine (DA), respectively. These interfaces displayed high sensitivity and wide linear range towards the analytes due to the electrostatic attraction effect. 2) Various structured PEDOT including porous microspheres and nanofibres were synthesised via hard-template and soft-template methods, respectively, and were employed as building blocks for a hierarchical PEDOT and 3D nanofibrous PEDOT transduction interface, that facilitated signal transduction for NADH. 3) A PEDOT hybrid material interface was developed via using a novel bi-functional graphene oxide derivative with high reduction degree and negatively-charged sulphonate terminal functionality (S-RGO) as dopant to create PEDOT:S-RGO which delivered an enhanced electrochemical performance for various analytes. Based on the established CP-based transduction interface, biomolecules (e.g. enzymes) could be coupled to the CP surface to create CP-based bio-interfaces for biosensing. The immobilisation of enzyme was realised via either covalent bonding to a PEDOT derivative bearing a -COOH group (PEDOT-COOH) through EDC/NHS chemistry, or by physical absorption into the 3D porous PEDOT structure. The CP-based bio-interfaces were used to demonstrate the stable immobilisation of two different types of enzymes, i.e. lactate dehydrogenase and lactate oxidase, achieving the biosensing of analytes by relay bioelectrochemical signal transduction. Together, CP was employed as the CP-based device interface for the fabrication of a flexible and wearable biosensing device. A 3D honeycomb-structured graphene network was generated in-situ on a flexible polyimide surface by mask-free patterning using laser irradiation. The substrate was then reinforced with PEDOT as a polymeric binder to stabilise the 3D porous network by adhesion and binding, thus minimising the delamination of the biosensing interface under deformation and enhancing the mechanical behaviours for use in flexible and wearable devices. The subsequent nanoscale-coating of Prussian blue and immobilisation of enzyme into the 3D porous network provided a flexible platform for wearable electrochemical biosensors to detect lactate in sweat. Rutinmässig övervakning av hälsorelaterade fysiologiska och biokemiska parametrar har blivit allt viktigare för ett stort antal människor bland annat seniorer, spädbarn, patienter med kroniska sjukdomar, idrottare, soldater och med flera, på både en fysisk nivå för förebyggande av sjukdomar samt på en medicinsk nivå för diagnos och behandling av sjukdomar. Stor uppmärksamhet har lagts på utveckling av elektrokemiska sensorer och biosensorer som point-of-care (PoC) diagnostiska enheter for rutinmässig sjukvårdsledning genom deras snabba svar, låga kostnad, höga specificitet och enkla drift. Deras analytiska funktioner drivs av avkänningsgranssnittet vilket involverar signaltransduktion vid transducer-gränssnittet och effektiv koppling av biomolekyler till transducer-biogränssnittet för specifik analytigenkänning. Upptäckten av konventionella funktionella och strukturerade material, t.ex. metalliska nanopartiklar, kolnanorör och grafen, har underlättat konstruktionen av transducergränssnitt med hög prestanda på grund av deras unika fysiokemiska egenskaper. Ytterligare forskning av avancerade material ar önskvärt for att uppnå ett väldesignat och skräddarsytt gränsnitt for elektrokemisk avkänning och biosensering for Internet of Things och klädd sensorer. Ledande polymerer (LP) ar en typ av nya funktionella polymerer med extraordinär redoxomvändbarhet, elektronisk/jonisk ledningsförmåga och mekaniska egenskaper, som uppvisar betydande potential som ett givarmaterial vid avkänning och biosensering. Medan de inneboende elektrokatalytiska egenskaperna i LP:er är begränsade, speciellt for den skrymmande polymeren, kan skräddarsydda LP:er med kontrollerad struktur och effektiva dopmedel förbättra den elektrokemiska prestandan hos ett givargränssnitt med större ytarea och förbättrade elektrokatalytiska egenskaper. Dessutom ger den syntetiska kemin LP:er mångsidiga funktionella grupper för att modulera gränssnittsegenskaperna för LP:er för att förbättra selektivitet for analytdetektering, såväl som för effektiv biomolekylkoppling som ett biogränssnitt som överbryggar den organiska elektroniken och det biologiska system som stöds av de LP:s organkemiska natur. Dessutom möjliggör de mjuka materialegenskaperna för LP:er för användning i utveckling av en flexibla och bärbara avkänningsplattformar med låg kostnad och lätt vikt, jämfört med konventionella styva material, såsom metaller och halvledare. Denna avhandling fokuserar på utforskning av LP:er för elektrokemisk avkänning och biosensering med förbättrad känslighet, selektivitet och stabilitet genom att skräddarsy LP:s gränssnitt i olika nivåer, inklusive LP-baserat transduktionsgränssnitt, LP-baserat bio-gränssnitt och LP-baserat enhetsgränssnitt. Först demonstrerar vi olika strategier for att skräddarsy fysikalisk-kemiska egenskaper hos poly (3,4-etylendioxytiofen) (PEDOT) som ett LP-baserat transduktionsgränssnitt för avkänning via laddningseffekter, struktureffekter och hybridmaterialeffekter för förbättrad prestanda för olika analyser utöver dess inre egenskaper. 1) Ett positivt laddat hierarkiskt PEDOT-gränssnitt och ett negativt laddat karboxylsyra-funktionaliserad PEDOT (PEDOT: COOH) gränssnitt utvecklades for att modulera gränssnittets kinetik for de motsatt laddade analyterna, t.ex. negativt laddad s-Nicotinamidadeninudukleotid (NADH) respektive positivt laddat dopamin (DA). Den elektrokemiska avkänningsprestandan hos dessa analyser förbättrades baserat på laddningseffekten med högre känslighet och ett bredare linjärt intervall. 2) Med tanke på den väl skrymmande filmbildande egenskapen och den resulterande låga tillgängliga aktiva ytan för PEDOT, syntetiserades olika strukturerade PEDOT inklusive porösa mikrosfärer och nanofibrer via en hård mall respektive en mjuk mall och användes sedan som byggstenar för hierarkiska PEDOT och 3D nanofibrosa PEDOT-transduktionsgränssnitt, vilket underlättar signaltransduktion for NADH. 3) Ett LP-hybridmaterialgränssnitt utvecklades med användning av ett nytt bi-funktionellt grafenoxidderivat med hög reduktionsgrad och negativt laddad sulfonatterminal funktionalitet (S-RGO) med förbättrad elektrokemisk prestanda fär olika analyser. Baserat på det etablerade LP-baserade transduktionsgränssnittet utvecklades sedan de LP-baserade bio-gränssnitten med immobilisering av biomolekyler (t.ex. enzym) för biosensering. Immobiliseringen av enzym på LP-gränssnittet realiserades via antingen kovalent bindning till PEDOT-derivatbärande -COOH-grupper (PEDOT-COOH) genom EDC/NHS-kemi eller fysisk absorption i porösa 3D-PEDOT-strukturer. De LP-biobaserade gränssnitten visar stabil immobilisering av två olika typer av enzymer, d.v.s. laktatdehydrogenas och laktatoxidas, vilket uppnår biosensering av analyter genom en successiv bioelektrokemisk signaltransduktion. Tillsammans användes LP:er som det LP-baserade enhetsgränssnittet för tillverkning av en flexibel och bärbar biosenseringsanordning. Ett tredimensionellt bikakestrukturerat grafennatverk genererades in-situ på den flexibla polyimidytan genom maskfri mönstring med laserbestrålningsteknik. Substratet förstärktes sedan med nanodeponerat PEDOT som ett polymert bindemedel for att stabilisera det porösa 3D-nätverket genom vidhäftning och bindning, vilket sålunda förbättrade det mekaniska beteendet för flexibla och bärbara anordningar. Den sekventiella beläggningen på nanoskala av Preussiskt blått (PB) och immobiliseringen av enzym i det porösa 3Dnatverket minimerade delaminering av biosenseringsgränssnittet vid deformation, vilket försedde en flexibel plattform för en bärbar elektrokemisk biosensor för detektering av laktat i svett med det monterade treelektrodsystemet.

Writable Biocatalytic Electrochemical Bioelectronics and Biosensors for Simultaneous Detection Book Review:

In response to growing demands on minimally or non-invasive biosensors, developing soft wearable bioelectronics is of great interest to health care monitoring system researchers. The wearable bioelectronics enable continuous physiological and physical monitoring to maintain health status. However, the wearable sensor is a nascent field and many challenges remain unsolved. Current wearable devices on the markets predominantly monitor physical parameters such as heart rate, temperature, motion and pressure. Few wearable sensors are able to quantify chemicals on the human body, providing comprehensive information of an individual's well-being. Monitoring an individual's physiological status is helpful to prevent or delay the onset of diseases and their complications e.g. diabetes, gout and schizophrenia. The present thesis demonstrated the concept proof of wearable biosensors for metabolite quantification. The first chapter introduced a writable biocatalytic electrochemical ink that can be used in rapid prototyping glucose biosensors and biofuel cells. The strechability of the written biosensors and biofuel cells was investigated. The second chapter presented a screen printed biosensor that was able to simultaneously detect dopamine and uric acid. The screen printed biosensor was fabrication on a flexible substrate which is applicable for wearable devices.

Macro Micro and Nano Biosensors Book Review:

This book includes an international group of researchers who present the latest achievements in the field of enzyme, immune system, and microbial and nano-biosensors. It highlights the experimental evidence for formation of biological fuel cells (BFCs)-which has a dual purpose – as a device that produces electricity and the systems which produce it simultaneously cleaning up the environment from polluting organic compounds. Considering the work in the field of macro, micro and nano-biosensors, considerable attention is paid to the use of nanomaterials for the modification of working electrodes. Nanomaterials in some cases can significantly improve the parameters of analytical systems. Readers will be interested in the projection of the presented theoretical and experimental materials in the field of practical application of modern analytical developments. The presented results in many cases imply the possibility of using the created models of macro, micro and nano-biosensors, and biofuel elements in the field of health, and protection/restoration of the environment. It includes information about all existing types of transducers of signals in biosensors – electrochemical, optical and quantum-optics, thermoelectric, data of atomic force microscopy, piezoelectric, and more. On the basis of these principles, descriptions are given about the functioning of macro, micro and nano- biosensors for the detection of compounds used in medicine, detection of compounds that clog the environment, and thus affect human health, for compounds that are potentially the basis for the production of drugs, for the selection of compounds that have medicinal activity, for immunodetection, and to assess the quality of food. These questions form the basis of research carried out in the field of biosensors in the world. Since the described models of biosensors have high sensitivity, high measurement speed and selectivity, the described results attract the attention of both the ordinary reader and business class specialists who create and implement analytical technologies. This book is very useful for researchers in life sciences, chemical sciences, physics, and engineering. In addition, it will be useful for the persons working in industry. Advanced technologies specialists will be attracted by the novelty of the proposed solutions and their relevance and ease of implementation. Since the studies contain sections describing the parameters of different biosensors, BFCs, they are easily navigated into assessing the effectiveness of the practical use of the proposed device. The relevant sections indicate such characteristics as detection ranges, life span, type of biological material used, the method of formation of the bio-receptor part. These parameters are of interest to both developers of new models of biosensors and BFC, and their manufacturers.

Emerging Memory and Computing Devices in the Era of Intelligent Machines Book Review:

Computing systems are undergoing a transformation from logic-centric towards memory-centric architectures, where overall performance and energy efficiency at the system level are determined by the density, performance, functionality and efficiency of the memory, rather than the logic sub-system. This is driven by the requirements of data-intensive applications in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, and edge computing. We are at an exciting time in the semiconductor industry where several innovative device and technology concepts are being developed to respond to these demands, and capture shares of the fast growing market for AI-related hardware. This special issue is devoted to highlighting, discussing and presenting the latest advancements in this area, drawing on the best work on emerging memory devices including magnetic, resistive, phase change, and other types of memory. The special issue is interested in work that presents concepts, ideas, and recent progress ranging from materials, to memory devices, physics of switching mechanisms, circuits, and system applications, as well as progress in modeling and design tools. Contributions that bridge across several of these layers are especially encouraged.
