Abstract
© 2021 Elsevier B.V. Current technologies on conductive carbon aerogels are merely for application of super-capacitors, anodes of lithium ion batteries and electrocatalysts. To our best knowledge, carbon nanofibre (CNF) aerogels in biomedical application of chronic wound monitoring have not been reported yet. In this paper, we proposed a chronic wounds pH sensor, which is based on 3D free-standing conductive CNF aerogel derived from pyrolyzed bacterial cellulose (p-BC) as conducting substrate and it is incorporated with flexible and proton-selective PDMS/PANI composite. The resulted p-BC/PDMS/PANI nanocomposite is soft, flexible, and can exhibit near Nernst limit pH sensitivity (~−50.4 mV/pH) in pH buffer solution, and −29 mV/pH in in vitro simulated wound fluid. This renders its applications in flexible bio-sensors and smart wound dressings.
