Antiadhesion Organogel Materials: From Liquid to Solid

Antiadhesion Organogel Materials: From Liquid to Solid
Yongmei Zheng, Lei Jiang, Jianjun Wang, Jianyong Lv, Xi Yao
Various organogel materials with either a liquid or solid surface layer have recently been designed and prepared. These surface materials can substantially reduce the adhesion of foreign deposits such as water, blood, paint, ice, and so on; therefore, they exhibit great potential for the easy removal of foreign deposits. Here, a brief discussion about the mechanism of organogel materials in reducing adhesion is given; then, examples of liquid organogels for fighting against varieties of complex fluidic deposits are presented, and efforts in preventing the depletion of liquid are discussed. Finally, applications of antiadhesion organogels with multifunctionality, and the strategy of replacing liquids with solids are presented. Recent advances in designing and investigating antiadhesion organogel materials are summarized. Easy removal of almost all unwanted deposits is achieved with the help of liquid or solid surface layers. Due to the diversity of gelators and the designability of the organogels, multifunctionality, high performance, and excellent durability of antiadhesion materials can be anticipated.
