Paper Abstract

The processing, fabrication and measurement of resistivity devices using salmon-derived DNA are reviewed in some detail. Details of the current transients that are recorded during the alternating-polarity technique are examined and identified. The DC volume resistivities of both as-received DNA and DNA-CTMA as well as the resistivity dependence on the molecular weight of DNA(sonicated)-CTMA are reviewed, which includes an analysis of this dependence and the effects of humidity on the measurements. Using the Miller-Abrahams model for hopping conduction provides insight into the relative sizes of the pre-exponential factors of the Arrhenius functions for the resistivity data of a variety of oil-derived polymers, and DNA and silk biopolymers.
