  • porous materials
  • In particular, slippery films with tunable wettability could be achieved when the scaffolds of the porous materials are composed of elastomers, such as polydimethylsiloxane, polyurethane, and polybutadiene ( 15 - 17 ). (sciencemag.org)
  • silica
  • In addition, sandwich wettability GDL has been coated with a silica particle/ Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) composite. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • On the other hand, performance testing indicates that (PEM) fuel cell equipped with sandwich wettability GDL results in the best performance compared to those with raw (non-coated) (slightly hydrophobic), PTFE coated (commercial with micro-porous layer (MPL)) (superhydrophobic), and silica coated (superhydrophilic) GDL. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • oxide
  • One of the reasons for the extensive study of wetting properties of metal oxide is due to the fact that wettability of such material is significantly altered by UV irradiation and dark storage. (springer.com)
  • novel
  • Moreover, the novel chitosan derivative not only directly coated cotton fabric via hydrogen-bonding interaction without removing water but also improved the long-term wettability and moisture retention because of the dual-layer ion structure of the chitosan derivative. (springer.com)
  • Influence
  • The amounts of free fatty acids present in fresh, air-dried, or heated wood were far too low to approach amounts considered necessary to influence surface wettability. (usda.gov)
  • 141.8 °F). The influence of each element Antimony: is added to increase the strength, but not changing the wettability. (wikipedia.org)
  • impact
  • Motivated by a broad potential impact on science and technology, materials with specific surface wettability have been the subject of intense research in areas ranging from biomedical devices and fuel transport to antifouling or anti-icing architectures ( 1 - 8 ). (sciencemag.org)
  • film
  • The main objective of the present study was to investigate the wettability of ZnO thin film by changing the concentration of Al doping. (springer.com)
  • view
  • Inspired by nature's Nepenthes pitcher plant, lubricant-infused slippery films introduce a new paradigm for the wettability of surface materials in view of their advantages of stable and defect-free repellency for various liquids ( 9 - 14 ). (sciencemag.org)
  • side
  • The wettability gradient has been introduced through plane of the one side hydrophobic GDL by coating one side of non-coated GDL with 15 wt. (uwaterloo.ca)
