pH-Dependent Thickness Behavior of Sequentially Adsorbed Layers of Weak Polyelectrolytes
A detailed study of the role that solution pH plays in the layer-by-layer processing of the weak polyelectrolytes poly(acrylic acid) and poly(allylamine hydrochoride) was carried out. It was foundExpand

Controlling Bilayer Composition and Surface Wettability of Sequentially Adsorbed Multilayers of Weak Polyelectrolytes
Variations in the linear charge density of a weak polyacid brought about by controlling solution pH in a layer-by-layer sequential adsorption process were used to systematically control the layerExpand

Optically transparent superhydrophobic surfaces with enhanced mechanical abrasion resistance enabled by mesh structure.
Inspired by naturally occurring superhydrophobic surfaces such as "lotus leaves", a number of approaches have been attempted to create specific surfaces having nano/microscale rough structures and aExpand

Biocompatible slippery fluid-infused films composed of chitosan and alginate via layer-by-layer self-assembly and their antithrombogenicity.
Antifouling super-repellent surfaces inspired by Nepenthes, the pitcher plant, were designed and named slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces (SLIPS). These surfaces repel various simple and complexExpand

Asymmetric Superhydrophobic/Superhydrophilic Cotton Fabrics Designed by Spraying Polymer and Nanoparticles.
Inspired by the special wettability of certain natural life forms, such as the high water repellency of lotus leaves, many researchers have attempted to impart superhydrophobic properties to fabricsExpand

Porous surface structure fabricated by breath figures that suppresses Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm formation.
As colonizers of medical-device surfaces, Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains present a serious source of infection and are of major concern. In this study, we fabricated films with porous surfaces byExpand

High-transparency, self-standable gel-SLIPS fabricated by a facile nanoscale phase separation.
Slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces (SLIPSs) that were both highly transparent and free-standing (self-standability) were fabricated by an extremely simple process using non-solvent-induced phaseExpand

Electrospun fibrous polyacrylic acid membrane-based gas sensors
Abstract Electrospun fibrous polyacrylic acid (PAA) membranes were studied as sensing material coated on quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) for ammonia detection at ppb level. The fibrous membranesExpand

Multi-core cable-like TiO2 nanofibrous membranes for dye-sensitized solar cells
Multi-core cable-like TiO2 nanofibres were fabricated by calcination of composite polyvinyl acetate (PVAc)/titania nanofibres with a hot pressing pre-treatment. This resultant novel fibre structureExpand
