Synthesis of platinum nanoparticles and nano-inks formulation for biomedical applications


The printed electronics market is experiencing a strong growth due to the continuing demand of the market for flexible and versatile devices. Platinum is a noble and inert metal. It is known by its biocompatibility. Platinum based inks can be used to print electrodes for working and counter electrodes of biosensors (electrochemical, chemical biochemical sensors). In this project, developed inks will be used to manufacture implantable electrodes in human body.

Description of Projectidea

The project main idea is to develop platinum nanoparticles and corresponding inks for biomedical applications. Platinum nano-inks must be compatible with polymer or cellulose based flexible substrates as well as biocompatible:
The main challenges of this project are:
- Develop an ink with a curing temperature < 150C and/or use of alternative sintering method
- Obtain a good electrical conductivity at low curing temperature
- Biocompatibility – no use of hazardous and risky materials and solvents

Consortium of partners, already involved

The consortium is not formed yet. We are seeking for partners to be involved in the project.

Partners sought to complete the consortium

- University or institute with skills in nanomaterials characterization (SEM, TEM, AFM, XPS, XRD, ICP, FT-IR, etc.)
- Company or university with skills in printing processes dedicated for electronic applications
- Company or university with skills in bio-functionalization and biocompatibility evaluation
- End users: biosensors and electrodes manufacturers
