Organic electronics has a tremendous potential for the development of electronic products that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly biodegradable. An ideal solution is the production of such devices either from naturally occurring or from nature-inspired materials that have been proved to be biodegradable and/or biocompatible. Such semiconductor materials have been recently implemented in organic photovoltaics and field effect transistors, and afforded performances on par with state-of-the-art synthetic organic materials. Among the materials we have exploited are naturally-occurring Indigo and Tyrian Purple as well as synthetically produced indigoids, anthraquinone derivatives, acridones, to name a few. We have demonstrated fully-biodegradable devices and circuits featuring natural substrates, dielectric and semiconducting layers operating at state of the art performance.
