RE: Sounds like the MSA....

Viscosity - Correct; I've found that connections I left for a month or so, when you pull the plug it looks pretty much like it did when you put it in. Also, I don't think it will dry up, at least not quickly, as the base is not very volatile.

Regarding what's going on at a microscopic level : One of the main reasons I think this works so well is due to the particle sizes.

Compare these figures:

Nano-silver : typical particle size ~100-500nanometers , surface area per gram ~1 square meter per gram

Graphene (of the types used in GCE) : particle size ~5-20nanometers, surface area per gram 60-100 square meters per gram.

My best idea of what's going on is that these ultra-small particles are good at getting in between metal conductors, to 'fill in the gaps' left by the inevitable micro-level roughness of the conductors. But regardless of what is happening at the micro-level, the important thing is the subjective improvement that occurs.
