Stretchable and durable superhydrophobicity that acts both in air and under oil

Stretchable and durable superhydrophobicity that acts both in air and under oil
Uttam Manna, Adil Majeed Rather
A facile and robust Michael addition reaction is strategically exploited here, to develop a highly stretchable (150% deformation) superhydrophobic material. This material strongly repels aqueous phase both in air and under oil and with impeccable physical/chemical durability, and is appropriate for rapid separation of both heavy and light oils from complex aqueous phases with above 99% efficiency.
