Toward electroactive self-cleaning fabrics and films
from SPE Plastics Research Online
Synthetic superhydrophobic materials are useful for a variety of different applications including protective industrial coatings, textile materials, microfluidics, biofouling, electronics and anti-icing. Introducing additional properties, such as magnetic and antimicrobial activity, liquid repellency with electrical conductivity and robustness and mechanical durability against continuous contact/use, would tremendously increase their usefulness in the marine, telecommunications, military and high-energy fields.
