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
