Abstract Bioadhesion and surface wettability are influenced by microscale topography. In the present study, engineered pillars, ridges and biomimetic topography inspired by the skin of fast moving sharks (Sharklet AF™) were replicated in polydimethylsiloxane elastomer. Sessile drop contact angle changes on the surfaces correlated well (R2 = 0.89) with Wenzel and Cassie and Baxter's relationships for wettability. Two separate biological responses, i.e. settlement of Ulva linza zoospores and… Expand
Bioinspired superhydrophobic poly(L-lactic acid) surfaces control bone marrow derived cells adhesion and proliferation.
TLDR
Water repellent surfaces with superhydrophobic characteristics were found to prevent adhesion and proliferation of bone marrow derived cells previously isolated from the femurs of 6-week-old male Wistar rats, when compared with smoother surfaces prepared by simple solvent casting. Expand

Grafting polymer brushes on biomimetic structural surfaces for anti-algae fouling and foul release.
TLDR
Results indicate that the structure of microspines on Trifolium leaf can inhibit settlement of microalgae and facilitate the cell release, and the AF property was improved by modification with PSPMA brushes. Expand
Nanoscale Pillar-Enhanced Tribological Surfaces as Antifouling Membranes.
TLDR
Comparisons showed significantly improved fouling resistance for both organic protein and bacterial foulants and the enhanced antifouling of the patterned membrane is attributed to the enhancement in overall and local shear stress at the fluid-TiO2 pattern interface. Expand
Biomimetic honeycomb-patterned surface as the tunable cell adhesion scaffold.
TLDR
Bioadhesion could be regulated as desired by tuning the distribution of zwitterionic polymer on the honeycomb surface by employing Casting and dip-coating to graft polySBMA onto the plasma treated PSHCM. Expand
Wettability Influences Cell Behavior on Superhydrophobic Surfaces with Different Topographies
TLDR
It is indicated that surface wettability, rather than polymer type or the topography of the superhydrophobic surfaces, is a critical factor in determining cell behavior. Expand

Micropatterned surfaces for the control of endothelial cell behaviour.
TLDR
Micropatterned materials were synthesised by photoimmobilising the sulphated hyaluronic acid with a photoreactive moiety on glass substrates and a more fusiform shape of the adhered endothelial cells was observed, demonstrating that the photomask was well reproduced on the sample surface. Expand
The influence of surface energy on the wetting behaviour of the spore adhesive of the marine alga Ulva linza (synonym Enteromorpha linza)
TLDR
Results reveal that the diameter of the adhesive pad is strongly influenced by surface wettability, the adhesive spreading more on the more hydrophilic surfaces, in direct contrast to previous observations on the spreading of marine bioadhesives. Expand

TLDR
Attachment of the bacteria appears to be predominated by transport from the bulk phase to the substratum, and was greatest on the downstream edges of the grooves. Expand
