Focus on: Superhydrophobic surfaces

Soft Matter & Journal of Materials ChemistrySuperhydrophobic surfaces can cause water to roll off leaving little or no liquid behind and even pick-up and remove small dirt particles resting on the surface; however, despite the  progress made, there is still an opportunity fabricate these surfaces using simpler and cheaper methods, to maximise roll-off, or to introduction additional functional properties. Here we’ve brought together a selection of articles covering the preparation of superhydrophobic surfaces and coatings, their chemical and physical properties, and the origin of the superhydrophobic effect.

Zeal for zeolites: an article collection

ZeoliteZeolites are truly fascinating materials, first noted in the 18th century they were recognized for their interesting ability to release steam when heated. Today around 3 million tons of natural zeolite are mined for commercial use each year. Zeolites have found applications in agriculture, construction, heating, refrigeration, nuclear energy, in the petrochemical industry, as detergents and cat litter!

Unsurprisingly these materials have sparked the interest of scientists around the world since their discovery, resulting in the creation of a vast number of unique zeolitic frameworks and pushing the boundaries of chemical understanding.

The articles below have been made free to access until 8th June to give you a sample of the high impact, cutting edge research being carried out in the exciting world of zeolites!
