Fabrication of natural and magnetic slippery surfaces
Liquid-infused porous surfaces (LIPS) are a type of low adhesion surfaces. They allow most common solids and liquids to slide off the surface easily. Because of this they are able to reduce the adhesion of food, ice, and even blood platelets to surfaces. As a result, LIPS have applications in reducing food waste, aircraft and powerlines deicing, and hemocompatable implants. However, most LIPS are made of toxic fluorocarbon materials. In this work, in order to eschew toxic fluorocarbon materials, we designed several LIPS made from natural hemp products. The first is an all-natural LIPS made from ...
