Neil J. Shirtcliffe, Glen McHale and Michael I. Newton The superhydrophobicity of polymer surfaces: Recent developments Journal of Polymer Science Part B: Polymer Physics 49
Superhydrophobicity is undergoing a transition from a new and exciting research area to application. Research has moved from generating surfaces and understanding, to planning complex structures and structure–liquid interactions. It is often no longer enough to just have a superhydrophobic or superoleophobic surface — it must now also fulfil other practical performance requirements. This review considers how polymers allow research to move out of the laboratory and add value to superhydrophobicity by providing those extra properties.
