Stretchable active-matrix organic light-emitting diode display using printable elastic conductors.
Stretchability will significantly expand the applications scope of electronics, particularly for large-area electronic displays, sensors and actuators. Unlike for conventional devices, stretchableExpand
Molecular Ordering of Organic Molten Salts Triggered by Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
When mixed with imidazolium ion-based room-temperature ionic liquid, pristine single-walled carbon nanotubes formed gels after being ground. The heavily entangled nanotube bundles were found toExpand
Fully plastic actuator through layer-by-layer casting with ionic-liquid-based bucky gel.
Printable electrical devices are attractive for the development of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) including sensors, switches, and micromachines. In particular, printable actuators that canExpand
A Rubberlike Stretchable Active Matrix Using Elastic Conductors
By using an ionic liquid of 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide, we uniformly dispersed single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) as chemically stable dopants in a vinylideneExpand
High-water-content mouldable hydrogels by mixing clay and a dendritic molecular binder
With the world’s focus on reducing our dependency on fossil-fuel energy, the scientific community can investigate new plastic materials that are much less dependent on petroleum than are conventionalExpand
High performance fully plastic actuator based on ionic-liquid-based bucky gel
Abstract In a previous paper, we reported the first dry actuator that can be fabricated simply by layer-by-layer casting, using ‘bucky gel’, a gelatinous room-temperature ionic-liquid containingExpand
Functional Supramolecular Polymers
Supramolecular Polymers Explained While polymers are constructed from chemically bonded units, supramolecular polymers arise through reversible linkages, such as hydrogen bonding and electrostaticExpand
Ionic liquids for soft functional materials with carbon nanotubes.
A serendipitous finding that ionic liquids gel with carbon nanotubes has opened a new possibility of ionic liquids as modifiers for carbon nanotubes. Upon being ground into ionic liquids, carbonExpand
