Thermal responsive biocompatible textile pads are prepared via in situ polymerisation of pyrrole on nonwoven viscose rayon (NWVR) fabric. Molecular motions at the interface of PPy and NWVR are responsible for the thermal actuation behaviour. The thermal actuation behaviour of the PPy-NWVR composite and its practical applications in electronic circuits and robotic engineering are successfully demonstrated for the first time.
