Abstract: Thanks to human's unrestrained imagination and the desire for a better living, future electronics are no longer restricted on rigid and fragile circuit boards but flexible and foldable substrates. With increasingly large applications of wearable electronics that require highly conductive and flexible interconnects, contacts and electrodes, metal-coated textiles are of significant interest. This article reviews a recently advanced strategy namely polymer-assisted metal deposition (PAMD) to fabricate highly durable and washable conductive textiles by introducing an interfacial polymer in-between the textile substrate and the metal layer. A robust metal layer is deposited on the textile surface with outstanding adhesion properties. PAMD is also compatible with current textile technologies such as 'pad-dry-cure' and screen printing, which is of great potential in mass production in the textile manufacturing industry. The mechanisms of PAMD, recent work on textile substrates and the potential for scale production are discussed in this review paper.
