Adaptable Fabrication Techniques for Mechanically Durable Superliquiphobic/philic Surfaces

  • Bharat BhushanEmail author
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 279)


Superliquiphobic and superliquiphilic surfaces have attracted interest within the scientific community and industry for various applications such as self-cleaning, anti-icing, anti-fogging, anti-fouling, finger print resistance, and drag reduction. The surfaces should be wear resistant. For some applications, such as oil-water separation, surfaces with a combination of water and oil repellency and affinity are required.
