Self-constructing superhydrophobic surfaces

Project Details


A breakthrough in developing mechanically durable superhydrophobic surfaces is not realized yet. Meanwhile, the design principles required are not explored deeply and systematically. To probe and summary, the essential features of Mechanical Robust Superhydrophobic Surfaces are in eager pursued the guidance of the next generation of superhydrophobic materials. A composite material is simultaneously mechanically robust, flexible, displays a self-similar nanoroughness and self-healing ability could be promising that enables it to withstand damage and can be used to coat distinct surfaces by industrial application methods. Developing routes that bypass the intrinsic vulnerability of superhydrophobic coatings relying on nanoroughness that can be ground and polished via mechanical abrasion.
