- ... Inspired by the microstructures of typical plants’ leaf surface, such as lotus leaves, red rose petals, rice leaves, etc. a functional superhydrophobic surface of aluminum alloy has been successfully fabricated by the one-step anodization process. The as-prepared superhydrophobic surface has a high contact angle of 171.9°±2° and a low tilting angle of 6.2°±1°, and possesses a good long-term stabil ...
