The functioning principles of electronic sensors based on organic semiconductor field-effect transistors (OFETs) are presented. The focus is on biological sensors but also chemical ones are reviewed to address general features. The field-induced electronic transport and the chemical and biological interactions for the sensing, each occurring at the relevant(More)
We report on the use of a polyanionic proton conductor, poly(acrylic acid), to gate a poly[2,5-bis(3-tetradecylthiophen-2-yl)thieno[3,2-b]thiophene]-based organic field-effect transistor (OFET). A planar configuration of the OFET is evaluated, and the electrical performance and implementation on a flexible substrate are discussed.
Thin-film transistors can be used as high-performance bioelectronic devices to accomplish tasks such as sensing or controlling the release of biological species as well as transducing the electrical activity of cells or even organs, such as the brain. Organic, graphene, or zinc oxide are used as convenient printable semiconducting layers and can lead to(More)
Bottom- and top-contact organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) were fabricated, using poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT) and poly[2,5-bis(3-tetradecylthiophen-2-yl)thieno[3,2-b]thiophene] (PBTTT-C16) as p-type channel semiconductors. Four different types of OTFTs were fabricated and investigated as gas sensors against three volatile organic compounds,(More)
Among the metal oxide semiconductors, ZnO has been widely investigated as a channel material in thin-film transistors (TFTs) due to its excellent electrical properties, optical transparency and simple fabrication via solution-processed techniques. Herein, we report a solution-processable ZnO-based thin-film transistor gated through a liquid electrolyte with(More)
This review aims to provide an update on the development involving dielectric/organic semiconductor (OSC) interfaces for the realization of biofunctional organic field-effect transistors (OFETs). Specific focus is given on biointerfaces and recent technological approaches where biological materials serve as interlayers in back-gated OFETs for biosensing(More)
In this contribution, we propose a label-free immunosensor, based on a novel type of electrolyte-gated field-effect transistor (EGOFET), for ultrasensitive detection of the C-reactive protein (CRP). The recognition layer of the biosensor is fabricated by physical adsorption of the anti-CRP monoclonal antibody onto a poly-3-hexyl thiophene (P3HT) organic(More)
The study of proteins confined on a surface has attracted a great deal of attention due to its relevance in the development of bio-systems for laboratory and clinical settings. In this respect, organic bio-electronic platforms can be used as tools to achieve a deeper understanding of the processes involving protein interfaces. In this work, biotin-binding(More)
Differentiation of enantiomers remains one of the most attractive and important research areas in analytical chemistry due to its impact on pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology, and food industries. For a long time chiral separation techniques, such as high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), and capillary electrophoresis(More)
