Anti-icing coatings with dual hydrophobic/hydrophilic properties
While anti-icing research has been the focus of much interest, the approaches developed so far suffer from inherent limitations, which restrict their application.
Efficient anti-icing properties
Scientists recentley developed a new generation of coatings coupling hierarchical nano/microstructures and dual hydrophobic/hydrophilic features, leading to efficient anti-icing properties.
The study is published in: Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Issue 40, 2018.
