Liquid metal dispersion by self-assembly of natural phenolics

Author affiliations

Abstract

Gallic acid, a natural phenolic compound, efficiently establishes surface complexes with liquid gallium leading to the formation of an aqueous gallium dispersion via sonication. The surface functionalised gallium particles thus obtained were easily impregnated into paper membranes that could be turned from insulating to conductive by pressure induced deformation of the embedded particles.
