Matrix-assisted catalytic printing (MACP) is developed as a low-cost and versatile printing method for the fabrication of multiscale metal conductors on a wide variety of plastic, elastomeric, and textile substrates. Highly conductive Cu interconnects (2.0 × 108S/m) fabricated by MACP at room temperature display excellent flexibility, foldability, and stretchability. KGaA, Weinheim.
