New developments in anisotropic wetting on 1D and directional patterned surfaces in recent years (i.e., 2005–2011) are reviewed in this paper. Both natural surfaces and fabricated surfaces using various approaches with 1D patterned surfaces or directional nanostructures exhibit obvious anisotropic static or dynamic wetting behavior. Some modeling and simulation methods are proposed to interpret the observed anisotropic wetting. Many potential applications exist for anisotropic wetting surfaces.
