50_23b/2011Back Cover: High-Temperature Wetting Transition on Micro- and Nanostructured Surfaces (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 23/2011)

Spreading to bouncing is a typical wetting transition of water droplets on high-temperature surfaces with different wettabilities and roughnesses, as described by J. Wang, L. Jiang, and co-workers in their Communication on page 5311 ff. The spreading–bouncing transition occurs on hydrophilic, hydrophobic, and superhydrophilic surfaces when the surface temperature reaches the bouncing temperature, while the transition does not take place on superhydrophobic surfaces.
