We present a method to chemically deposit a conductive polymer, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT), on acellularized muscle tissue constructs. Morphology and structure of the deposition was characterized using optical and scanning electron microscopies (SEM). The micrographs showed elongated, smooth, tubular PEDOT structures completely penetrating and surrounding the tissue fibers. The chemical polymerization was performed using iron chloride, a mild oxidizer. Remaining iron and chlorine… CONTINUE READING
