Abstract

A renewable superhydrophobic-superhydrophilic pattern with a minimum dimension of 50 μm is prepared from octadecyltrimethoxysilane self-assembled monolayer-covered superhydrophobic A12O3 overlayers on a superhydrophilic TiO2 surface via self-assembly and calcination of boehmite (A1OOH • nH2O) particles. The resulting A1 2O3 layer plays dual roles as a superhydrophobic layer and as a UV-blocking layer for the underlying TiO2.
