Water resistant nanomaterial mimics lotus leaf
Engineers Australia , 21st Dec 2015
They are one of the most hydrophobic (or water repelling) surfaces known and American and European researchers have mimicked their surface structure to create a nanomaterial that might be a simpler and more environmentally-friendly way of protecting surfaces from water.Click here to read more
Lead researcher Andrew Barron from Rice University in Houston, Texas, said the hydrophobic characteristics of the lotus leaf are due to papillae within the epidermis and epicuticular waxes on top.
Super water-resistant coating inspired by nature [Registered]
International Sugar Journal , 18th Dec 2015
The hydrocarbon-based material may be a “green” replacement for costly, hazardous fluorocarbons commonly used for superhydrophobic applications, said the lead researcher Andrew Barron.Click here to read more
A new class of superhydrophobic nanomaterials
Materials World , 15th Dec 2015
A new class of superhydrophobic nanomaterials that could simplify the process of protecting surfaces from water for a smaller cost has been developed.Click here to read more
The material, made by scientists at Rice University, USA, the University of Bristol and Swansea University, UK, and the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France, is inexpensive, nontoxic and can be applied to a variety of surfaces by spray- or spin-coating.
