In recent years, various biomimetic materials capable of forming gaseous plastron on their surfaces have been fabricated and widely used in various disciplines and fields. In particular, on submerged surfaces, gaseous plastron has been widely studied for antifouling applications due to its ecological and economic advantages. Gaseous plastron can be formed on the surfaces of various natural living things, including plants, insects, and animals. Gaseous plastron has shown inherent anti-biofouling properties, which has inspired the development of novel theories and strategies toward resisting biofouling formation on different surfaces. In this review, we focused on the research progress of gaseous plastron and its antifouling applications. View Full-Text
