Self-roughened superhydrophobic coatings for oil-water separation

Wednesday, 13 May 2015

Chinese researchers have investigated self-roughened superhydrophobic coatings for continuous oil-water separation.

Hydrophobic polydimethylsiloxane based coatings were self-roughened on textiles via a nonsolvent-induced phase-separation method.

Excellent filters for oil-water separation

The self-roughened coatings have superior durability in superhydrophobicity. The obtained superhydrophobic and superoleophilic materials were demonstrated as excellent filters for continuous oil-water separation. The work showed large-scale and practical application for consecutive collection of oil from water.

The study is published in: Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Issue 19, 2015.
