Direct Micromolding of Pd -Stripes for Electronic Applications
Abstract:A simple, one-step direct micromolding process has been realised to produce highly conducting Pd -stripes over large areas on various substrates including flexible polyimide. Under a PDMS micromold, Pd octanethiolate served as a precursor at 250 °C, a temperature at which the precursor gets neatly metallised. Thus produced -stripes are robust under bending and can be utilised for flexible electronics. Hydrogen sensing by Pd -stripes is demonstrated. By electrolessly depositing Cu on the stripes, they can be made to peel off to form free standing Cu–Pd -ribbons.
