Abstract

Learning from nature, we revealed that a super-hydrophobic surface needs the cooperation of micro- and nanostructures. Further studies have proved that the arrangement of micro/nano structure can directly affect the water movements. Based on the micro/nano structured interfaces with super-wettability, kinds of basic chemical reactions could be done within a small water drop. Under certain circumstances, a surface wettability can switch between superhydrophilicity and superhydrophobicity. We recently extended the cooperation concept into 1D system. Artificial ion channels with smart gating properties have been fabricated. The other one dimensional system is the artificial spider's silk and cactus that can collect water from moist air.
