- ... We demonstrate the multilevel hierarchy of nanoscale wax crystals on nanowire (NW) structures that strongly repels not only water but also olive oil and hexadecane. We deposited C₂₄F₅₀-fluorinated wax (F-wax) using thermal evaporation on the surface of CuO NWs. Fluorinated wax crystals are self-assembled on the CuO NWs forming three-dimensional hierarchical structures. The achieved multilevel hier ...
