Abstract

A method of creating patterned conductive multilayered polymer/exofoliated graphite nanoplatelet (xGnP) nanocomposite films was developed using the layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly of xGnP. Multilayered graphite was exfoliated followed by milling to created size-controlled xGnP. Conductive xGnP films were created on PDMS stamps without the use of oxidation/reduction steps. It was found that by first adsorbing a weakly bound PAH layer onto a PDMS stamp the entire multilayer film could be completely transferred to a PEM coated substrate. The adsorption allowed the patterned films to be transferred to any surface. It was observed that the transferred films showed excellent conductivity for electrostatic dissipation applications.
