Conductive composites based on conductive polymers (CPs) have enabled the development of a range of materials for biomedical applications that can be tailored to improve material properties critical to long-term performance of implantable devices. Nonconductive polymers can be used to impart tailored presentation of biomolecules and improve the brittle mechanical properties of CPs. Additionally, CPs have been used to successfully impart conductivity to hydrogel and elastomeric polymers. While there have been significant challenges in producing interpenetrating networks of CPs, several approaches have yielded materials with bulk characteristics that indicate the presence of each of the component polymers. True interpenetrating networks (IPNs), such as double networks, where one network is a CP have not yet been realised; however, it is expected that IPNs will provide optimal materials with the highest electroactivity.
