Smart Interfacial Materials from Super-Wettability to Binary Cooperative Complementary Systems
Learning from nature and based on lotus leaves and fish scale, we developed super-wettability system: superhydrophobic, superoleophobic,superhydrophilic, superoleophilic surfaces in air and superoleophobic,superareophobic, superoleophilic, superareophilic surfaces under water.
Further, we fabricated artificial materials with smart switchable super-wettability, i.e., nature-inspired binary cooperative complementary nanomaterials (BCCNMs) that consisting of two components with entirely opposite physiochemical properties at the nanoscale, are presented as a novel concept for the building of promising materials.
