Abstract

This review reports the implementation of novel nanostructured functional coatings by using different surface engineering techniques based on wet chemistry. In the first section, the theoretical fundaments of three techniques such as sol-gel process, layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly and electrospinning will be briefly described. In the second section, selected applications in different potential fields will be presented gathering relevant properties such as superhydrophobicity, biocide behavior or applications in the field of optical fiber sensors.
