Abstract

The construction and application of superoleophobic surfaces have aroused worldwide interest during the past few years. These surfaces are of great significance not only for fundamental research but also for various practical applications in self-cleaning, oil-repellent coatings, and antibioadhesion. The unique properties of polymers have made them one of the most important materials for constructing superoleophobic materials. This article reviews recent developments in the design, fabrication, and application of polymeric superoleophobic surfaces. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Polym Sci Part B: Polym Phys, 2012
