Silica/Silicone nanofilament hybrid coatings with almost perfect superhydrophobicity


Zhang, Junping; Seeger, Stefan (2013). Silica/Silicone nanofilament hybrid coatings with almost perfect superhydrophobicity. ChemPhysChem, 14(8):1646-1651.

Abstract

A facile method for the preparation of silica/silicone nanofilament hybrid coatings with almost perfect superhydrophobicity(contact angle=179.88 and sliding angle=1.38) is presented.The coatings are obtained by dip-coating of silica nanoparticles,followed by chemical vapor deposition of silicone nanofilaments.
Predominant growth of silicone nanofilaments onto aggregated silica nanoparticles generates a two-tier structure.The effect of silica nanoparticle size on the growth of silicone nanofilaments, along with their anti-wetting properties and transparency are investigated in detail. Surface roughness and anti-wetting properties can be simply regulated by controlling the size of silica nanoparticles.

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.
