Abstract
This work reports a comprehensive study about cell adhesion and proliferation on the surface of different electroactive substrates formed by p-conjugated polymers. Biological assays were performed considering four different cellular lines: two epithelial and two fibroblasts. On the other hand, the electroactivity of the three conducting systems was determined in physiological conditions. Results indicate that the three substrates behave as a cellular matrix, even though compatibility with cells ...
