Abstract

CNT/biopolymer composite materials having continuous porous structure were developed as the electrode materials for bio-fuel cell. Biodegradable polymer, PLLA, and natural biopolymer, collagen, were utilized as the polymer matrix of the composite materials. Enzymes were also distributed in the composites. Microstructures of the composites were observed using a field-emission scanning electron microscope. A simple experimental set-ups of bio-fuel cell were also constructed using the composite materials as the electrodes. Fundamental electric property such as electrification was then examined using the systems.
