Patterned conductive nanostructures from reversible self-assembly of 1D coordination polymer

Abstract

In this study, the outstanding ability of the coordination polymer [Pt2(nBuCS2)4I]n (nBu = n-butyl) (1) to reversibly self-organize from solution was demonstrated. This feature allowed us to generate highly electrical conductive structures located upon demand on technologically relevant surfaces, by easy-to-handle and low cost micromolding in capillaries (MIMIC) and lithographically controlled wetting (LCW). Electrical characterization reveals a near Ohmic behaviour and a high stability of the stripes (in air). Electrodes produced by the MIMIC technique from a solution of compound 1 demonstrated that this material can be efficiently used as electrodes for organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
