Slippery liquid-infused porous surface: Review on Recent developments
It is generally important to analyse and summarise the most recent SLIPS-progress to boost its further development and applications. A recently published review begins with the bio-inspired design of the SLIPS system with reference to the conventional superhydrophobic counterparts, and outlines a number of fabrication strategies by introducing liquid or solid lubricant into surfaces of different wetting features.
Future perspectives are discussed
The typical applications are summarised and compared towards oil/water separation, anti-icing, anti-fouling, anti-corrosion, and other emerging trends. The future perspectives are discussed based on the state-of-the-art studies at the end.
The review has been published in Progress in Organic Coatings, Volume 166, May 2022.
