We report herein the micropatterning of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) on a hydrogel, agarose, to provide a fully organic, moist, and flexible electrode. The PEDOT/agarose electrodes were prepared through two electrochemical processes: electropolymerization of PEDOT into the hydrogel and electrochemical-actuation-assisted peeling. We also present a typical application of the PEDOT/agarose electrode to the cultivation of contractile myotubes.
