Recent development of self-healing surfaces with special wettability
Nevertheless, tremendous challenges still remain for the fabrication of wetting surfaces with durable and self-healing properties.
Perspectives on future R&D is presented
In a study, researchers highlighted recent progress of durable, self-healing wetting surfaces by discussing the fabrications of several typical wetting surfaces including superhydrophobic surfaces, superamphiphobic surfaces, underwater superoleophobic surfaces, and high hydrophilic antifouling surfaces based on expertise and related research experience. To conclude, some perspectives on the future research and development of these special wetting surfaces are presented.
The study is published in: Macromolecular Rapid Communications.
