Conductive hydrogel is a 3D structural gel with high water content and electrically conductive materials e.g. metallic nanoparticles. This research aims to develop a reliable approach for making a new generation of conductive hydrogels that can serve as building blocks for bioelectronic devices in personalised healthcare and other bioengineering areas, including electronic skins, body matched antennas, and biosensors. This research focuses on the development of a system that demonstrates synergistic outstanding mechanical performance and electrical conductivity, which is currently a significant challenge in the field. Thus, this work is expected to create new paradigms for hydrogel materials fabrication with infinite applications.
