Paper Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-based biopolymers posses unique electronic and self assembly properties that render them suitable organic semiconductors for organic field effect transistors. Doping DNA molecules with conductive guests has resulted in a significant decrease of the overall resistivity of the blend with effective free charge carrier mobilities comparable to other conductive polymers such as pentacene and poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT). In this paper we discuss doping DNA with single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and transistor behavior.
