A Stable Biomimetic Superhydrophobic CuO Surface Prepared by a Facile and Inexpensive Environmental-Friendly Method
A facile and inexpensive environmental-friendly method was developed to prepare a biomimetic superhydrophobic CuO surface with hierarchical micro- and nanostructures by the combination of a simple solid state reaction and a convenient dipping-coating method. The biomimetic CuO surface showed superhydrophobicity even for some corrosive liquids including salt solutions and acidic and basic solutions at a wide pH range from 2 to 13. Moreover, the superhydrophobic CuO surface showed high stability in ambient environment even exposed to ultraviolet light for 10 h.
