Abstract: The metallisation of surfaces would be technologically very simple if it were possible to use the properties of the substances that decompose upon UV irradiation and produce species with a strong redox potential. In this work, diazene sulphonates are presented as possible reducing agents for Ag+ in aqueous solutions and in thin solid layers. The photo-formation of Agnm+ clusters in the presence of diazene sulphonates in solutions was investigated via UV-VIS spectroscopy. Significant differences were observed in the electrical properties of surfaces after photo reduction; these occurred without any additional reducing agent.

Keywords: diazene sulphonate – polymer – reduction – silver – metallisation
