Abstract

The wetting/antiwetting behavior of liquid droplets on a solid surface is not an apparent or simple contact between two phases, but among three phases. Inspired by the antiwetting behavior of oil droplets on fish scales in water, a superoleophobic and low-adhesive interface is created on a solid substrate with micro/nanohierarchical structures, using oil/water/solid three-phase systems.
