Abstract

original image

Macroscale elastomeric conductors com­posed of sponge-like three-dimensional silver-carbon hybrid nanocable/carbon nanotube networks can be fabricated through the template role of hydrothermally synthesized silver-cross-linked poly(vinyl alcohol) coaxial nanocable artificial sponges. The obtained elastomeric conductors exhibit excellent elasticity, high conductivity (∼120 S·cm−1) and good reversibility with compressive deformation, showing potential application as elastomeric conductors, press sensors, and biosensors.
