‘Green’ project led by Rice, Swansea scientists matches best water repellant
A new class of superhydrophobic nanomaterials might simplify the process of protecting surfaces from water.
A material made by scientists at Rice University, the University of Swansea, the University of Bristol and the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis is inexpensive, nontoxic and can be applied to a variety of surfaces via spray- or spin-coating.
The Nice Sophia Antipolis University (French: Université Nice Sophia Antipolis) is a university located in Nice, France and neighboring areas.
It was founded in 1965 and is organized in eight faculties, two autonomous institutes and an engineering school.
It also hosts the very first WWW Interactive Multipurpose Server (WIMS).
