Advancements in the fabrication and study of superhydrophobic surfaces have been significant over the past
10 years, and some 20 years after the discovery of the lotus effect, the study of special wettability surfaces can ...

An approach for the fabrication of functional polymer surface coatings is introduced, where micro-scale
structure and surface functionality are obtained by means of self-assembly mechanisms. We illustrate
two main ...

The preparation of polymer thin films or surface coatings that display a static water contact angle .958 often requires
hierarchical roughness features or surface functionalization steps. In addition, inherently hydrophobic ...

Micropatterned polymer surfaces, possessing both
topographical and chemical characteristics, were prepared on
three-dimensional copper tubes and used to capture atmospheric
water. The micropatterns mimic the structure ...

Wepresent a superhydrophobic coating made fromwaterborne, all-polymeric ‘raspberry’ particles, composed of
a micrometric spherical core decorated with a corona of nanometric spherical particles. As-cast particles ...
