Surfaces that mimic self-cleaning properties of lotus leaves are desired in many applications. Superhydrophobic self-cleaning is achieved when water droplets can easily roll off the surface and pick up dirt particles on the way. Electrospinning is a promising technique to fabricate such surfaces. It allows producing superhydrophobic webs composed of fine fibers by tuning fibers surface roughness and chemistry. This article reviews the most recent studies where electrospinning was used to create superhydrophobic surfaces.
