The idea is to develop a way to turn ordinary paper into conductive graphite. This will open the door to a new generation of electronic components house in inexpensive, everyday objects.
It is possible to change the cellulose of the paper into conductive graphite using an ordinary inkjet printer loaded with a cartridge of an iron nitrate catalyst. The designs will be printed on regular paper, which will then be heated to 1,472°F in an oxygen-free environment. This extreme heat will cause the catalyst to transform the cellulose fibers into pure graphite while the non-printed areas of the paper will remain unaffected.
