The global production of unrecycled electronic waste is extensively growing each year, urging the search for alternatives in biodegradable electronic materials. Electroactive bacteria and their nanowires have emerged as a new route toward electronic biological materials (e-biologics). Recent studies on electron transport in cable bacteria—filamento...

Context 1
... electronics is a new field that aims to replace the harmful nondurable materials used in electronics with biodegradable alternatives. In this review we will discuss the recent advances of using biomaterials for biodegradable electronics and the possible role of electroactive bacteria and in particular cable bacteria, of which an overview is given in Figure 1. ...
Context 2
... next to direct current (DC), alternating current (AC) signals have been shown to pass through cable bacteria ( Bonné et al., 2020). Showing visible degradation after 9-30 days in its near-natural environment during which time it has been exposed to mainly (micro-) oxic conditions (Supplementary Figure 1), this suggests that cable bacterium could be an interesting biodegradable material for bioelectronics. ...
