Recent Advances in Superhydrophobic Electrodeposits
AbstractIn this review, we present an extensive summary of research on superhydrophobic electrodeposits reported in the literature over the past decade. As a synthesis technique, electrodeposition is a simple and scalable process to produce non-wetting metal surfaces. There are three main categories of superhydrophobic surfaces made by electrodeposition: (i) electrodeposits that are inherently non-wetting due to hierarchical roughness generated from the process; (ii) electrodeposits with plated surface roughness that are further modified with low surface energy material; (iii) composite electrodeposits with co-deposited inert and hydrophobic particles. A recently developed strategy to improve the durability during the application of superhydrophobic electrodeposits by controlling the microstructure of the metal matrix and the co-deposition of hydrophobic ceramic particles will also be addressed.
