Abstract

original image

Stable and continuous gold-coated fibrous mats, which may be used as electrodes for electrochemical experiments or for fabrication of electronic devices, have been fabricated. The formation of conductive gold films on flexible electrospun poly(methyl methacrylate) ultrafine fibrous mat substrates (see figure) is described, and the positive effect of heat treatment demonstrated.
