25_12b/2013Nanotube Arrays: In Situ Surface-Modification-Induced Superhydrophobic Patterns with Reversible Wettability and Adhesion (Adv. Mater. 12/2013)

A facile, in situ, ink-regulating approach is developed on page 1682 by Lifeng Chi, Yuekun Lai, and co-workers for rapidly reversible water wettability and adhesion transition, with a large degree of contrast, on superhydrophobic TiO2 nanotube array film. This finding provides new strategies in the design of siteselective, sticky superhydrophobic patterns for droplet manipulation and cell immobilization.
