Superhydrophobic 'nanoflower' for biomedical applications

Superhydrophobic 'nanoflower' for biomedical applications Grantee News thomas.johnson Wed, 07/03/2019 - 09:52 Plant leaves have a natural superpower -- they're designed with water repelling characteristics. Called a superhydrophobic surface, this trait allows leaves to cleanse themselves from dust particles. Inspired by such natural designs, a team of researchers at Texas A&M University has developed an … Continue reading Superhydrophobic 'nanoflower' for biomedical applications
