Smooth, transparent and nonperfluorinated surfaces exhibiting unusual contact angle (CA) behavior toward various organic liquids have been prepared using a simple sol–gel solution containing decyltriethoxysilane (DTES) and tetramethoxysilane (TMOS). The insertion of co-condensed silica units derived from TMOS as a spacer between the neighboring alkyl (decyl) chains allows them to rotate freely and provide a surface with liquid-like properties. The resulting surfaces exhibit negligible CA… Expand
Molecular Surface Arrangement to Control Dynamic Dewettability
In this chapter, we introduce novel surfaces showing unusual dynamic dewetting behavior against various types of polar and nonpolar liquids in air, water, and oil. Our techniques, using relativelyExpand
Unusual dynamic dewetting behavior of smooth perfluorinated hybrid films: potential advantages over conventional textured and liquid-infused perfluorinated surfaces.
TLDR
It is successfully demonstrated that dynamic dewettability toward various probe liquids (polar and nonpolar liquids with high or low surface tension) can be tuned by not only controlling surface chemistries (surface energies) but also the physical nature of the surface. Expand
Why can organic liquids move easily on smooth alkyl-terminated surfaces?
TLDR
It is found that the organic probe liquids with low dielectric constants can move easily and roll off when tilted only slightly, independent of the magnitude of CAs, without relying on conventional surface roughening and perfluorination. Expand
Long perfluoroalkyl chains are not required for dynamically oleophobic surfaces
Dynamically oleophobic surfaces for alkane liquids, such as n-decane, n-dodecane and n-hexadecane, were successfully prepared using a simple sol–gel mixture containingExpand
How to reduce resistance to movement of alkane liquid drops across tilted surfaces without relying on surface roughening and perfluorination.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the physical attributes of alkylsilane-derived surfaces (liquid-like or solid-like) are dependent on the alkyl chain length and density, and these factors subsequently have significant influence upon the dynamic dewetting behavior toward alkanes (C(n)H(2n+2), where n = 7-16).

Novel transparent zirconium-based hybrid material with multilayered nanostructures: studies of surface dewettability toward alkane liquids.
TLDR
X-ray diffractometry revealed that the hybrid films prepared using the longer chain carboxylic acids spontaneously self-assembled into lamella structures with d-spacings ranging from 29.5 to 32.7 Angstroms, depending on the length of the alkyl chain. Expand
Origins of Extreme Liquid Repellency on Structured, Flat, and Lubricated Hydrophobic Surfaces.
TLDR
It is found that the dissipative force-due to very different physical mechanisms at the contact line-is independent of velocity on superhydrophobic surfaces but depends nonlinearly on velocity for flat and lubricated surfaces. Expand

TLDR
It has been concluded that CAH, and not CA, is the decisive attribute for liquid repellency of PDMS coating. Expand
Surface Functionalization for a Nontextured Liquid-Infused Surface with Enhanced Lifetime.

Highly Wettable Slippery Surfaces: Self-cleaning Effect and Mechanism
Self-cleaning surface is usually superhydrophobic and non-wettable, characterized by a large static contact angle ( ≥ 150) and a small sliding angle (≤ 10). In contrast, wettable surfaces areExpand

Robust omniphobic surfaces
TLDR
Four design parameters are proposed that predict the measured contact angles for a liquid droplet on a textured surface, as well as the robustness of the composite interface, based on the properties of the solid surface and the contacting liquid, that allow two different families of re-entrant surfaces to be produced. Expand
Designing Superoleophobic Surfaces
TLDR
It is shown how a third factor, re-entrant surface curvature, in conjunction with chemical composition and roughened texture, can be used to design surfaces that display extreme resistance to wetting from a number of liquids with low surface tension, including alkanes such as decane and octane.

Hydrophobic/superhydrophobic oxidized metal surfaces showing negligible contact angle hysteresis.
TLDR
Dynamic wettability of oxidized metal surfaces could be tuned by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of 1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane (D(4)(H)) by changing the CVD temperature, resulting in a marked difference in the final wetting properties. Expand
A physical approach to specifically improve the mobility of alkane liquid drops.
TLDR
While mobility of water drops was inferior and became worse at higher MWs, n-decane drops were found to experience little resistance to movement on these polymer brush films, which displayed lower resistances to liquid drop movement with decreasing polymer MW and surface tension of probe liquid as measured by contact angle (CA) hysteresis and tilt angle measurements.
