- The development of an innovative interfacial wetting strategy known as liquid infused systems offers great promise for the advanced design of superwetting and superantiwetting substrates to overcome the drawbacks of textured surfaces classified under the heading of Cassie/Wenzel states. The potential value of nature-inspired surfaces has significant potential to address scientific and technological challenges within the field of interfacial chemistry. The objective of the current review is to provide insights into a fruitful and young field of research, highlight its historical developments, examine its nature-inspired design principles, gauge recent progress in emerging applications, and offer a fresh perspective for future research.
