Summary of "Highly sensitive, reliable and flexible piezoresistive pressure sensors featuring polyurethane sponge coated with MXene sheets."

Flexible pressure sensors still face a great challenge to combine fast frequency response, wide pressure range, multiple detection modes, satisfactory mechanical and environmental stability, and simple fabrication process into a sensor. Herein, flexible piezoresistive pressure sensors are fabricated by treating the backbone of polyurethane (PU) sponge with chitosan (CS) to obtain positively charged CS@PU sponge, followed by dip-coating of negatively charged TiCT MXene sheets. The resulting MXene@CS@PU sponge-based sensor provides a versatile sensing platform with potentials for detecting both small and large pressure signals. Due to the highly compressive resilience of the PU sponge and its polar interaction with the MXene sheets, the MXene@CS@PU sensor has high compressibility and stable piezoresistive response for compressive strains of up to 85% with a stress of 245.7 kPa, and it also exhibits a satisfactory reproducibility for 5000 compression-release cycles. Even after washing in water for 1 h, the sensor still shows good performances. With a rapid response time of only 19 ms and a low detection limit of 30 μN corresponding to a pressure of 9 Pa, the MXene sponge sensor is promising for detecting human physiological signals and insect movements. In addition to the contact mode detection, the sponge sensor could detect voices and human breaths by a non-contact detection mode.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A highly-sensitive (in the picomolar range, which is 10,000-fold more sensitive than conventional electrophoresis) and efficient technique that allows separation of PROTEINS; NUCLEIC ACIDS; and CARBOHYDRATES. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

The noninvasive measurement or determination of the partial pressure (tension) of oxygen and/or carbon dioxide locally in the capillaries of a tissue by the application to the skin of a special set of electrodes. These electrodes contain photoelectric sensors capable of picking up the specific wavelengths of radiation emitted by oxygenated versus reduced hemoglobin.

Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.

The response of cells in sensing a difference in OSMOTIC PRESSURE between the inside and outside of the cell. This response includes signaling from osmotic sensors to activate transcription factors, which in turn regulate the expression of osmocompensatory genes, all functioning to maintain CELL VOLUME and the water concentration inside the cells.
