Metal-based conducive nano-inks: A review of synthesis and characterisation techniques



In the recent decade, metal-based conductive nano-inks comprising of nanometer-sized metallic particles of high electrical conductivity (mainly Ag and Cu) suspended in a polymer have revolutionized the field of printed electronics. The present review aims to provide an overview of the current state of research in synthesis and characterization techniques for metallic nano-inks and associated challenges. Moreover, the end of the review will discuss future perspectives in this field (from industrial and academic viewpoints).
