Biodegradable electronics represent an emerging class of technology with potential to provide advanced semiconductor functionality in temporary biomedical implants. This work reported a biodegradable primary battery as a potential power source for these systems, which uses biodegradable metal foils and polyanhydride packages. Monolithically integrating cells yields battery packs with sufficient power to operate conventional light emitting diodes and radio transmitters.
