Summary of "Durable superhydrophobic glass wool@polydopamine@PDMS for highly efficient oil/water separation."

The application of superhydrophobic materials for oil/water separation is receiving increasing attention. Meanwhile, durable superhydrophobic/superoleophilic materials and simple preparation methods are highly desired. Here, inspired by nature, we report a simple method for preparation of durable superhydrophobic glass wool (GW) for highly efficient oil/water separation. The durable and low-cost GW was converted to superhydrophobic simply by polymerization of dopamine followed by chemical vapor deposition of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). The polymerization of dopamine generated a lot of polydopamine nanoparticles on the surface of GW microfibers, forming hierachical micro-/nanostructures. The chemical vapor deposition of PDMS efficiently reduced the surface energy. The combination of the hierachical micro-/nanostructure and the PDMS layer successfully made the GW superhydrophobic with a water contact angle of ∼156° and water drops could easily roll off. In addition, the superhydrophobic GW showed high chemical stability in corrosive solutions and oils and high thermal stability. Moreover, the superhydrophobic GW showed high efficiency in selective oil absorption and oil/water separation as well as high recyclability. We believe that the superhydrophobic GW may find application in practical oil/water separation because of its good performance in oil/water separation and high stability under diverse harsh conditions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fluoride-releasing restorative materials made by the sintering of metal (usually silver) particles to glass ionomer powder. Glass ionomers are fluoride-releasing cements that are not very durable. Sintering of the metal particles is a means of improving those physical properties that will make the glass ionomer cement more durable.

A polymer obtained by reacting polyacrylic acid with a special anion-leachable glass (alumino-silicate). The resulting cement is more durable and tougher than others in that the materials comprising the polymer backbone do not leach out.

Composite materials composed of an ion-leachable glass embedded in a polymeric matrix. They differ from GLASS IONOMER CEMENTS in that partially silanized glass particles are used to provide a direct bond to the resin matrix and the matrix is primarily formed by a light-activated, radical polymerization reaction.

A highly-sensitive (in the picomolar range, which is 10,000-fold more sensitive than conventional electrophoresis) and efficient technique that allows separation of PROTEINS; NUCLEIC ACIDS; and CARBOHYDRATES. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

The hair of SHEEP or other animals that is used for weaving.
