Transcript of Botanical Circuit

Details of the model
Creating A Connection...
A Connection With Life...
A Connection With Plants...
Care & Integration between Different Lives & Man

...Using Technology
Can widen the gap between individuals
But can just as well serve to improve the connection between us & other lives
Establish connections with plants using the latest technology
Botanical Circuit
Electrical circuit with a touch of botany (building an electrical circuit inside the plant using conductive polymers;
Beneficial to humankind;
and strengthen the care of humans for plants
Four Connections
Enhancing care for different lives
Linking Botany, Organic Electronics & Computer Science
Joining monomers to form Conductive polymer wire in our model
Connecting humans with nature
Objectives and Aims
To understanding the internal conditions of plants easily
To show that plants can be involved in the development of technology
To develop a way of setting up polymer inside the xylem of plants without damaging them
Significance of the Model
Positive impacts on industries related to botany
Increase people's awareness for caring plants
Enhance the development of technology to build closer connections between humans and other lives
Theory Applied
Short polymer chains of conductive polymers absorbed through roots
Forming an 'electrical wire' in xylem
Monitor & measure plant's internal workings
Reasons for Applying these Theories
Unique characteristic of absorption in plant's root system
Applying practical theories to help us further study
Enrich our knowledge toward plants
Impurities present will not participate in our reactions
Substances are not harmful to plants
Plants have reasonable resistivity towards the current flowing through
Limited budget and lacking in-depth knowledge of bioelectronics & organic chemistry
Actual meanings behind data may not be interpreted using logics & knowledge we have
Time is limited
Properties of PEDOT-S:H
Conducting polymer
Colorless and high conductivity
Soluble in water
Chemically stable
Derivative of PEDOT
Formation of Hydrogel
PEDOT-S:H are hydrophilic
Homogenous & long-range hydrogel conductor
Conducting wire formed in xylem
Various data about the workings of internal system of plant can be measured
Sample Plants
Chemicals (monomer EDOT-S:H, oxidant etc.)
pH meter
Conducting Wires
Au probes
Voltmeter, micro-ammeter
Power supply

Q&A Section
Thank you
4-(2,3-dihydro-thieno[3,4- b][1,4]dioxin-2-ylmethoxy)-butane-1-sulfonic acid
Add a mixture of iron(III) chloride(aq) and sodium persulfate(aq) to EDOT-S in water to form PEDOT-S.

The product is precipitated using acetone and additional steps are taken to purify it

The plant is allowed to
absorb the polymer from the soil.
The circuit is set up as follows
Conductive Polymer
Electrical properties of polymers
U.S. Patent No. 5360,440
Electrical signals and their physiological significance in plants
Electrical signals in plants: facts and hypotheses
Iron-catalyzed Polymerization of Alkoxysulfonate-Functionalized 3,4-Ethylenedioxythiophene Gives Water-Soluble Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) of high conductivity
Stimulation of plants growth with electricity, magnetism, sound, etc.
