"Researchers have known for a long time that eumelanin—the pigment that
colors human skin, hair, and eyes—can conduct electricity. But eumelanin
in its natural form isn’t conductive enough to be very useful, and
nobody could figure out how to give it a boost. This week, that changed.
In a paper published
this week in the journal Frontiers in Chemistry
an interdisciplinary team of Italian scientists describe a breakthrough
process that dramatically enhances eumelanin’s conductivity."
