Controlled Fabrication of Superhydrophobic Hierarchical Structures Using Epf/carbon Based Composites

Abstract

We have prepared and characterized a series of nonfluoro polymer composites with functional carbon additives such as graphite, candle soot and camphor soot which when mixed with EPF (Expanded Polystyrene Foam) matrices increase surface hydrophobicity. Water contact angles of >150° was observed on spin-cast composite film surfaces containing 3% camphor soot… (More)
