Superhydrophobic Surfacesanalyzes the fundamental concepts of superhydrophobicity and gives insight into the design of superhydrophobic surfaces. The book serves as a reference for the manufacturing of materials with superior water-repellency, self-cleaning, anti-icing and corrosion resistance. It thoroughly discusses many types of hydrophobic surfaces such as natural superhydrophobic surfaces, superhydrophobic polymers, metallic superhydrophobic surfaces, biological interfaces, and advanced/hybrid superhydrophobic surfaces.

  • Provides an adequate blend of complex engineering concepts with in-depth explanations of biological principles guiding the advancement of these technologies
  • Describes complex ideas in simple scientific language, avoiding overcomplicated equations and discipline-specific jargon
  • Includes practical information for manufacturing superhydrophobic surfaces
  • Written by experts with complementary skills and diverse scientific backgrounds in engineering, microbiology and surface sciences
