ELECTROLESS INKS: PRINTING SOLID METAL STRUCTURES BY INCORPORATING ELECTROLESS DEPOSITION CHEMISTRIES INTO PRINTABLE INKS

 A process for depositing a metal includes disposing a liquid deposition composition on a substrate, the liquid deposition composition including a metal cation; a reducing anion; and a solvent; evaporating the solven; increasing a concentration of the reducing anion increases in the liquid deposition composition due to evaporating the solvent; performing an oxidation-reduction reaction between the metal cation and the reducing anion in response to increasing the concentration of the reducing anion when the reducing anion is present at a critical concentration; and forming a metal from the metal cation to deposit the metal on the substrate.
