Abstract:

The invention generally relates to polymerizable conductive ink formulations comprising at least one metal source, at least one monomer and/or oligomer and a polymn. initiator, and uses thereof for printing three-dimensional functional structures. In particular a method of fabricating a three-dimensional conductive pattern on a substrate is disclosed, the method comprising: (a) forming a pattern on a surface region of a substrate by using an ink comprising at least one metal source, at least one liq. polymerizable monomer and/or oligomer, and at least one polymn. initiator; (b) polymg. at least a portion of said liq. monomer and/or oligomer; (c) rendering the metal source a continuous percolation path for elec. cond. (sintering); (d) repeating steps (a), (b) and optionally (c) to obtain a three-dimensional conductive pattern. [on SciFinder(R)]
