Here we introduce novel methods of forming silver (Ag) and palladium (Pd) fibers. The Ag and Pd fibers are fabricated by the combination of electrospinning, electroplating, and ion-exchange techniques. Their properties are characterized by scanning electron microscope with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, sheet resistance meter, UV–Vis spectrophotometer, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscope. These non-woven metal fibers are free-standing and film-shaped with high electrical conductivity, as well as flexibility. Such properties are attractive for future applications of these materials in various electrochemical processes.
