Abstract

The creation of an artificial superhydrophobic surface with micro- and nanostructures has been demonstrated using a block copolymer micelle solution and silica nanoparticles. The unique technique of a nanoparticle-supported micelle stabilization together with changes in the solvent power guarantees the precise morphology control of certain block copolymer-mediated surfaces. The approaches presented here provide a new strategy for the fabrication of a wettability-controlled organic-inorganic hybrid or organic coatings.
