Toward Biodegradable Electronics: Ionic Diodes Based on a Cellulose Nanocrystal-Agarose Hydrogel

Bioderived cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are used to create mild, versatile, biocompatible, and biodegradable digital gadgets. Herein, floor modification of cellulose nanocrystals was employed to manufacture cationic and anionic CNCs. Subsequently, we demonstrated rectification conduct from a set junction between two agarose hydrogels doped with cationic and anionic cellulose nanocrystals. The present rectification ratio reaches 70…

Activated-carbon-filled agarose hydrogel as a natural medium for seed germination and seedling growth

An activated-carbon-filled agarose (Agar-AC) hydrogel containing numerous concentrations of activated carbon (AC) was efficiently fabricated by a easy solvent solid approach. In comparison with pure agarose hydrogels, Agar-AC hydrogels exhibited glorious mechanical properties, good thermal stability and a extremely developed pore construction. The Agar-AC hydrogels additionally confirmed a sure diploma of enchancment in water retention…
