Super catalyst

Method of applying a conductive layer to plastic substrates

Background

Pt catalysts have a wide range of applications and are used in DSSCs, fuel cells, in water treatment, CO sensors, etc. Although there are several ways to deposit the catalyst, when applying it to thermally unstable substrates, most methods are complicated and/or require expensive equipment.

Description of the Solution

The present solution provides a practical method to easily deposit Pt or Pd nano-particles or electrically conductive layers at low temperatures, thereby also enabling the deposition on flexible thermoplastic substrates.

Main Advantages

  • Fast application,
  • good control over particle size and distribution,
  • the possibility of applying it to all shapes of substrates,
  • it requires no expensive equipment and
  • it can be applied at low temperature.
