New paper by Teresa is published in Green Chemistry!
In this work we introduce a simple and environmentally benign method to create functional coatings mimicking the lotus leaf and the pitcher plant in a scalable process. In contrast to conventional fabrication processes that typically require toxic components and elevated temperatures, we developed an aqueous dispersion-based, fluorine-free coating system that produces highly repellent surface coatings at ambient conditions. This work is a contribution to the Baybionik Projektverbund. Read the full paper here!
