Article history: We reported an approach of preparing highly conductive, anticorrosion, ﬂexible Ag hybrid ﬁlms enhanced Received 13 June 2017 by multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanodaimonds (NDs) on molecular-grafted PET substrate Received in revised form 25 July 2017 by spin-spray for ﬂexible electronics. we studied in this paper and found that even an outstanding Accepted 28 July 2017 enhancement on conductivity of Ag ﬁlms, CNTs have a negative effect on anticorrosion property. Mean- Available online 4 August 2017 while, NDs decreased the conductivity of Ag/CNTs hybrids, but it remained a relatively high conductivity property and even was afﬁrmed a distinctly boost improvement on anticorrosion, microhardness and ten- Keywords: sile strength, which meant a better mechanical chemical stabilization and practicability in real ﬂexible Ag/CNTs electronics. To obtain the strong adhesive strength of ﬁlms/substrate, molecular-grafting technology was Nanodiamonds applied, which was afﬁrmed by XPS and cross-cut test. What’s more, we evaluated anticorrosion property Molecular-grafting by electrochemistry test, including Tafel measurements and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy Conductivity Anticorrosion property measurements, proving the positive effect of NDs on Ag/CNTs hybrid ﬁlms. For practical application, a Flexible electronics ﬂexible light-emitting diode (LED) circuit was successfully structured and remained steady under bend- ing, folding and
