Superamphiphobic surfaces


Chu, Zonglin; Seeger, Stefan (2014). Superamphiphobic surfaces. Chemical Society reviews, 43(8):2784-2798.

Abstract

Superamphiphobicity is an effect where surface roughness and surface chemistry combine to generate surfaces which are both superhydrophobic and superoleophobic, i.e., contact angles (yCA) greater than 1501 along with low contact angle hysteresis (CAH) not only towards probing water but also for low-surface- tension 'oils'. In this review, we summarize the research on superamphiphobic surfaces, including the characterization of superamphiphobicity, different techniques towards the fabrication of surface roughness and surface modification with low-surface-energy materials as well as their functional applications.
