Disclosed is a strategy to direct the metallization of a nonconductive substrate by combining microcontact printing (5CP) and electroless deposition (ELD). Such strategy provides an interesting alternative to conventional microfabrication procedures that otherwise would include the deposition of a metal in vacuum and patterning it using photolithography.
