United States Patent Application No. 61/337,960 discloses an electroconductive ink with metallic nanoparticles. The ink contains an organophosphorus acid that increases adhesion between the deposited metallic layer and the substrate to which the metallic layer is applied. The invention also provides for a process for applying the compositions to substrates such as would be used in making electronic devices.

"One of the key focuses for our technology is to improve adhesion and its use in electroconductive inks is a very interesting application of our technology. We believe that this technology fills a significant gap where alternative electroconductive inks have fallen short in conductivity and adhesion," comments Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon.
