Abstract

An electrochemical cell contains a conductive organic material such as tetrathiofulvalinium tetracyanoquinodimethane (TTF)(TCNQ) as the working electrode. The (TTF)(TCNQ) is plated with a metal, for example, silver or gold, with a plating density of about a few tens of microamps/cm/2/. This deposition method does not require additional heat treatment, is effected by a low kinetic energy reaction, and does not require high current density pulses.
