Superhydrophobic Polymer Surfaces: Preparation, Properties and Applications - Research and Markets

Friday, Dec 16, 2016

Research and Markets has announced the addition of Smithers Information Ltd's new book "Superhydrophobic Polymer Surfaces: Preparation, Properties and Applications" to their offering.

The main focus of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the new developments regarding the preparation and characterisation of superhydrophobic polymeric surfaces. A large number of methods used in the preparation of robust and durable superhydrophobic polymer surfaces and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Close relationship between the polymer composition, hierarchical micro/nano surface topography and superhydrophobic behavior are provided. In addition to the practical aspects, special emphasis is also given to the discussion of the theoretical foundations of the wetting behavior of rough surfaces.

This book provides a clear understanding of the theoretical foundations of superhydrophobicity together with practical experimental guidance for the preparation of such polymeric surfaces to researchers and application engineers working in the field.

Key Topics Covered:

1 Polymer Surfaces

2 Theoretical Models of Surface Wetting

3 Wetting Behaviour of Natural Surfaces: Superhydrophobicity, Superhydrophilicity and Superoleophobicity

4 Methods and Processes used for the Preparation of Superhydrophobic Polymer Surfaces

5 Characterisation Methods of Superhydrophobic Surfaces

6 Stimuli-Responsive Surfaces with Tunable Wettability

7 Current and Potential Applications of Polymers with Superhydrophobic Surfaces
