Superoleophobic Surfaces: Bioinspired Design of a Superoleophobic and Low Adhesive Water/Solid Interface (Adv. Mater. 6/2009)
The inside cover shows a bionic strategy to create a low-adhesive and superoleophobic interface via the oil/water/solid three-phase system, which was inspired by the antiwetting behavior of the oil droplets on the fish scales in water, as reported by Lei Jiang and co-workers on p.665. Such antiwetting behavior provides an insight into why many seabirds but few fish are killed when oil tanker spills occur.
