Bio-inspired Wettability Surfaces : Developments in Micro- and Nanostructures
Biological surfaces provide endless inspiration for the design and fabrication of functional interface materials with unique wettability, generating promising applications such as micro-fluidic devices, functional textiles, corrosion resistance, liquid transportation, and antifogging. This book presents the mechanism of smart wetting control, such as water collection/repellency on biological micro-/nanostructure gradient interfaces. It also offers approaches on how to mimic the biological features to realize the bioinspired functional surfaces with unique wettability. The book will help researchers to develop the innovative design of novel materials.
