Bionic materials having the inclusive functions and properties present in the nature are of great importance in the development of human-machine interfaces. Triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) is a novel and sustainable technology for energy harvesting, among which the sliding mode TENG are considered as the high conversion efficiency mode. However, extreme friction wear limits the output stability and reliability, reducing the use of sliding mode TENG for mechanical energy harvesting. Here, we report a bionic composite film, which is inspired by the structure and the composition of snake scales as the friction layer for TENG to overcome the problem. Through in-depth experimental analysis of structural and compositional characteristics, we demonstrated that bionic composite film has greater charge transfer, wear resistance and can maintain a stable output even under high-speed sliding operation. This study highlights the merits in achieving higher interface stability and promotes the great potential of TENG for easy commercialization.
