  • A biomimic surface was coated onto a poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE) substrate. The coated PTFE surface was found to have nanoscale roughness and high hydrophobicity. In the first preparation step, the PTFE surface was modified by plasma etching. A self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of octadecyltrichlorosilane (ODTS) was then deposited onto the modified surface with a thickness of a 2–3 nm. This surface was found to have self-cleaning features similar to those of a lotus leaf. The self-cleaning… CONTINUE READING
