A natural electroactive protein hydrogel was prepared from soy protein isolate (SPI) solution by cross-linking with epichlorohydrin. Under electrical stimulus, such SPI hydrogel quickly bends toward one electrode, showing a good electroactivity. Because of its amphoteric nature, the SPI hydrogel bends either toward the anode (pH < 6) or cathode (pH > 6), depending on the pH of the electrolyte solution. Other factors, such as electric field strength, ionic strength and gel thickness also… CONTINUE READING
