Abstract : Methods and compositions for electroless metallization. In one aspect, the invention is characterized by the use of chemical groups capable of ligating with an electroless metallization catalyst, including use of ligating groups that are chemically bound to the substrate. In a preferred aspect, the invention provides a means for selective metallization without the use of a conventional photoresist patterning sequence, enabling fabrication of high resolution metal patterns in a direct and convenient manner.
