Conductive Aqua Nano-ink Formulation for a Range of Writing Instruments

Non-Confidential description of the invention

The present invention relates to a nanoparticle based aqueous conductive ink formulation comprising a water-soluble thixotropic polymer and fine dispersion of metal nanoparticles in water in a suitable ratio. The ink formulated is eco-friendly and can be filled into various writing devices such as a pen to form print traces on eco-friendly flexible substrates. The line traces thus formed are electrically conducting as nanoparticles form a percolative path on evaporation of the solvent via a chemically- driven self-sintering phenomenon. A method of producing metal-nanoparticle ink with uniform size and shape and which is suitable for mass production is described.
