Due to its good electrical conductivity, mechanical flexibility, chemical inertness, and biocompatibility, gold (Au) has been widely used in the development of electronic skin devices. Various gold materials, such as evaporated Au, AuNPs, and AuNWs, have been developed and utilized in the fabrication of high-performance electronic skin sensors and integrated devices. This work reviews evaporated Au-, AuNPs-, and AuNWs-based electronic skins, with a focus on material design, fabrication methods, and applications, and finally discusses the prospects and challenges for the development of gold-based electronic skins. © 2022 Scientia Sinica Chimica.
