The superhydrophobicity of polymer surfaces: Recent developments
( 12031217)
 Journal of Polymer Science B: Polymer Physics 49, #17 (2011)
Shirtcliffe, McHale and Newton of the Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom, review superhydrophobicity research which has reached a stage where huge numbers of candidate treatments have been proposed and jumps have been made in theoretically describing them. There now seems to be a move to more practical concerns and to considering the demands of individual applications instead of more general cases. With these developments, polymeric surfaces with their huge variety of properties have come to the fore and are fast becoming the material of choice for designing, developing, and producing superhydrophobic surfaces,  (RDC 7/27/2011)

Mimicking natural superhydrophobic surfaces and grasping the wetting process: A review on recent progress in preparing superhydrophobic surfaces
(80-105) Advances in Colloid and Interface Science 169 #2 (2011)
Yan, Gao and Barthlott, United Kingdom and Germany, reviewed the most recent progress in preparing manmade superhydrophobic surfaces through a variety of methodologies, particularly within the past several years, and the fundamental theories of wetting phenomena related to superhydrophobic surfaces.  We also discuss the perspective of natural superhydrophobic surfaces utilized as mimicking models. The discussion focuses on how the superhydrophobic property is promoted on solid surfaces and emphasizes the effect of surface roughness and structure in particular. This review aims to enable researchers to perceive the inner principles of wetting phenomena and employ suitable methods for creation and modification of superhydrophobic surfaces.  (RDC 11/22/2011)
