Redox polymers in bioelectrochemistry: Common playgrounds and novel concepts

Adrian Ruff, Current Opinion in Electrochemistry 2017,


Redox polymers are widely applied in bioelectrochemical applications. Thus, the design of novel polymers and tuning of mediator properties, in particular the redox potential, plays a crucial role for the fabrication of highly efficient bioelectrodes. This review summarizes recent developments and advances in redox polymers that were used for the development of various bioelectrochemical devices, i.e. amperometric biosensors, bioelectrocatalysis and energy conversion/storage systems.
