Title: SILVER ION CARBOXYLATE PRIMARY ALKYLAMINE COMPLEXES
Abstract:
A non-hydroxylic-solvent soluble silver complex has a reducible silver ion complexed with an α-oxy carboxylate and a primary alkylamine. This non-hydroxylic-solvent soluble silver complex can be represented by the following formula (I): wherein L represents the α-oxy carboxylate; P represents the primary alkylamine; a is 1 or 2; b is 1 or 2; and c is 1, 2, 3, or 4, provided that when a is 1, b is 1, and when a is 2, b is 2. Such complexes can be incorporated into photosensitive compositions that are then used to provide photosensitive thin films or photosensitive thin film patterns in various precursor and product articles. The reducible silver ions can be quickly and efficiently reduced to electrically-conductive silver metal upon exposure to UV-visible radiation in various methods.
