Artus, Georg R J; Zimmermann, Jan; Reifler, Felix A; Brewer, Stuart A; Seeger, Stefan (2012). A superoleophobic textile repellent towards impacting drops of alkanes. Applied Surface Science, 258(8):3835-3840.

Abstract

A commercially available polyester fabric has been rendered superoleophobic by coating with silicone
nanofilaments and subsequent plasma fluorination. The treated samples show outstanding oil-repellency.
They achieve the highest possible oil-repellency grade of 8, repel impacting drops of alkanes and show
a plastron layer in hexadecane. The oil repellency is shown to depend on the topography of the silicone
nanofilament coating.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
