The chemical composition of a TiO2 nanoparticle coated paper surface was analyzed using time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) to study the interconnection between wettability and surface chemistry on the nanoscale. In this work, a superhydrophobic TiO2 surface rich in carboxyl-terminated molecules was created by a liquid flame spray… CONTINUE READING
