Organometallic Deposition of Nickel: An Electroless Route to Nanoscale Films

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have demonstrated that designed reactive organometallic precursors could be decomposed to form metallic coatings on almost any substrate with unique control. This approach allows direct synthesis on any substrate, with the use of standard coating equipment such as spin coating. The synthetic pathway has been very successful with copper and nickel alloys and compounds, together with the discovery of enhanced electronic properties (magnetic moment, anisotropy, plasmon). These complex materials are now studied as catalyst layers in electrocatalysis of H 2 oxidation and O 2 reduction in fuel cells. M. Shviro and D. Zitoun * Nanoscale 2012 , 4, 762-767 M. Shviro and D.
