Ultraporous superhydrophobic gas-permeable nano-layers by scalable solvent-free one-step self-assembly

Liu, Guanyu; Wong, William; Nasiri, Noushin; Tricoli, Antonio


Superhydrophobic materials with excellent humidity tolerance, high porosity and light transmittance are being investigated for numerous applications including moisture-sensitive catalysts and perovskite solar cells. Here, we report the one-step solvent-free synthesis of ultraporous superhydrophobic nano-layers by the on-the-fly functionalization of nanoparticle aerosols. Short exposure of surfaces to hot Mn3O4, ZnO and TiO2 aerosols results in ultraporous nanoparticle networks with repulsive...[Show more]
