Flexible and conductive materials have a high application potential across many parts of modern life. In this work, thin free-standing films from single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were doped with Ag to enhance their electrical conductivity. A facile method to integrate these two materials is described herein. As a consequence, the material exhibited a six-fold boost to the electrical conductivity: an increase from 250 ± 11 S/cm to 1721 ± 125 S/cm. Interestingly, the specific conductivity remained at a comparable level upon doping, so the material was deemed promising in exploitation fields whereweight is of the essence. Furthermore, the material showed good bending characteristics, thereby revealing its applicability in flexible electronics.
