Abstract: DEVELOPING SOLUTION BASED TRANSPARENT CONDUCTING OXIDES (TCOS) HAS BEEN OF GREAT INDUSTRIAL AND RESEARCH INTEREST DUE TO ITS HIGH SCALABILITY AND COST EFFECTIVENESS. IN OUR WORK, TWO SOLUTION BASED APPROACHES, I.E., PARTICLE-TO-FILM AND GEL-TO-FILM HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO FABRICATE TRANSPARENT CONDUCTIVE NIOBIUM-DOPED TIO2 (NTO) THIN FILMS. A MINIMUM RESISTIVITY OF 41.8 OHM?CM AND A TRANSMITTANCE OF 81% AT VISIBLE RANGE WERE ACHIEVED UNDER NON-VACUUM CONDITION. IN USE OF DFT CALCULATIONS, FOUR AMINE-BASED SHORT-CHAIN MOLECULES HAVE BEEN EXPLORED AS EFFECTIVE DISPERSANTS IN HYDROTHERMAL PRODUCTION OF ANTIMONY-DOPED TIN OXIDE (ATO). IN ADDITION, WE HAVE USED ACETYLENE AND TEREPHTHALIC ACID (TPA) TO CONDUCT SURFACE MODIFICATIONS ON ITO AND NTO NANOPARTICLES, RESPECTIVELY. THE SUCCESSFUL ATTACHMENT OF THESE MOLECULES MAY IMPROVE THEIR WETTABILITY IN ORGANIC ELECTRONICS APPLICATIONS AND EXTEND ITS USE IN TRANSPARENT ORGANIC ELECTRODES.
