Superhydrophobic, porous, 3D materials composed of poly(ϵ-caprolactone) (PCL) and poly(glycerol monostearate-co-ϵ-caprolactone) (PGC-C18) as a hydrophobic dopant are fabricated using the electrospinning technique. These materials are distinct from 2D superhydrophobic surfaces with maintenance of air at the surface and within the bulk of the material, and, thus, these functional materials can be considered for new applications where time and rate of wetting dictate performance.
