N-Heterocyclic carbene and thiol micropatterns enable the selective deposition and transfer of copper films

Author affiliations

Abstract

Microcontact printed patterns of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) and thiols were prepared on gold substrates and utilized as templates for the creation of metallic Cu structures using electroplating. The presence of the NHC in the pattern is essential to enable the transfer of the resulting copper microstructures to a second substrate.
