Lotus leaves and water ferns support new ideas for superhydrophobic surfaces

The water fern salvinia molesta is exremely hydrophobic. For the fern surrounds itself by a flimsy skirt of air. This layer prevents the plant from coming into contact with liquid. And that even witha dive lasting weeks.

Isoconversional kinetic analysis of liquid resins

Parameters derived from the isoconversional kinetic analysis of liquid resins are not only theoretical descriptors but also have direct practical relevance in the modeling of product propertiesderived from these liquid resins when used to supplement technological databases. Dr. Andreas Kandelbauer of Reutlingen University explains the benefits of this method for the coatings industry.By Kirsten Wrede
