Engineered wettability is a traditional, yet key issue in surface science and attracts tremendous interest in solving large-scale practical problems. Recently, different super-wettability systems have been discovered in both nature and experiments. In this Review we present three types of super-wettability, including the three-dimensional, two-dimensional, and one-dimensional material surfaces. By combining different super-wettabilities, novel interfacial functional systems could be generated and integrated into devices for use in tackling current and the future problems including resources, energy, environment, and health.
