Patterned electroless deposition of metals...

has been achieved by a method involving microcontact printing, chemical surface modification, binding of metal ions, and reduction. Complexation of self-assembled polyamine–amide dendrimers with Pd2+ ions followed by reductive Pd cluster formation creates nuclei for metal deposition. (A. M. Bittner et al., June 18, Adv. Funct. Mater. 2002, 12, 432–436)
