Abstract

original image

Wearable electronics require highly conductive fibrous materials, which can now be fabricated at room temperature. In their Communication on page 7718 ff., H. M. Lee, S. H. Ko, and co-workers demonstrate that cotton or paper fibers can be impregnated and coated with Al atoms from the precursor Al{O(C4H9)2}. The fibrous materials exhibit excellent electrical conductivity, as well as enduring mechanical strength, which is indicative of their potential applications for flexible and wearable electronics.
