Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nature has developed material systems whose surface properties enable enhanced functional performance or give optimum protection in demanding contact conditions or aggressive environments. The self-cleaning properties of the Lotus leaf, the anti-reflective properties of the moth-eye and the turbulence-reducing properties of shark skin have attracted much research attention over the last decades. This special issue welcomes contributions on artificial organic coatings inspired by nature's example, but also new insights on physical principles underlying properties and performance of coatings formulations.

Hence, contributions are solicited on one or more of the following topics:

  • fabrication of micro- and nanostructured organic surfaces and surface functionalization
  • characterization and testing of mechanical, optical, adhesive or other functional properties
  • new understanding and insights into interfaces, cohesion and phase behaviour of coating formulations
