Hybrid TiO2/metal nanoparticle microstructures made by microcontact printing, absorption and electroless deposition

Author affiliations

Abstract

Patterns of TiO2 nanoparticles were obtained by microcontact printing on glass and silicon surfaces. The TiO2 nanoparticle layer was crosslinked with a bifunctional organic ligand and microstructured with tuneable shape and thickness. Furthermore, the TiO2 nanoparticle pattern could be used as a template for the in situ preparation of hybrid TiO2/metal (Au, Ag, Fe) nanoparticle microstructures on surfaces by absorption and reduction of metal salts. Finally, electroless deposition was carried out on micropatterned TiO2/Au nanoparticles to obtain conductive Cu wires.
