A responsive/adaptive nonadhesive surface coating that combines hydrophobic particles and hydrophilic polymer chains in a tethered composite coating is demonstrated. Rigid particles provide low contact area, while a selective segregation of polymer chains upon changing the surrounding environment from vapors to liquids and vice versa adapts the low-adhesive property of the composite surface.
