Materials for electronics that function as electrical and/or thermal conductors are often rigid, expensive, difficult to source, and sometimes toxic. An electrically and thermally conductive nanocomposite that is lightweight, flexible, and ecofriendly could improve the environmental friendliness of the electronics sector and enable new applications. Considering this, flexible and electrically and thermally conductive materials are fabricated by functionalizing paper with nanocarbon conductive…
