Corrosion protection coatings have been required for long-term uses of metallic materials applied in various environments incorporating liquid and/or vapor phase corrosion reactants. In this study, we introduce a fluorocarbon lubricant impregnated nanoporous oxide (FLINO) coating on stainless steel for realizing effective resistances against corrosive media in both liquid and vapor phases. The FLINO layer on stainless steel significantly enhances corrosion resistances with superior durability and self-healing capability. The combination of nanoporous structure and fluorocarbon lubricant layer provides an outstanding atmospheric corrosion resistance, which has been a serious issue to be overcome on corrosion-resistant coatings. Therefore, the FLINO coating exhibiting stable and remarkable corrosion resistance against both liquid and vaporized corrosive media, called omnicorrosion-resistance, gives a new route for the versatile protection of metallic materials in various environments encompassing both underwater and atmospheric applications.

Recently, various types of porous surfaces have been demonstrated for lubricant (e.g., oil) impregnated omniphobic surfaces. However, the retention of the lubricating liquid within the porous layer an...
It is worth noting that the multifunctional surfaces are highly desirable for water collection applications on droplet nucleation and removal. Although the superhydrophobic surfaces (SHSs) is benefici...
Graphene-related materials are promising solid lubricants owing to their easy shear between lattice layers. However, the coefficient of friction (COF) of graphene is not sufficiently low at the macros...
External ventricular drains (EVDs) are commonly used in the neurosurgical population. However, very few pediatric neurosurgery studies are available regarding EVD-associated infection rates with antib...
For water electrolysis, a rare earth material (eg., platinum) is often used as an electrode, but because of the high cost and toxicity of chemicals, researchers are searching for cost effective and ec...
The purpose of this study is to compare the comfort and blurriness of an investigational lubricant eye drop with a marketed lubricant eye gel.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of exaggerated use of Lubricant Eye Drops in a population of normal subjects by measuring corneal epithelial permeability...
Most clinical major depression responds to standard treatments (medication and psychotherapy); however, a significant subset of depressed patients (15-20%) do not respond to these treatmen...
To evaluate the acute comfort and blurring profile between two artificial tears products in dry eye patients
The efficacy, safety and acceptability of an investigational lubricant eye drop in subjects with dry eye will be evaluated in comparison with currently-available lubricant eye drops.
Liquid perfluorinated carbon compounds which may or may not contain a hetero atom such as nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur, but do not contain another halogen or hydrogen atom. This concept includes fluorocarbon emulsions and fluorocarbon blood substitutes.
Stainless steel. A steel containing Ni, Cr, or both. It does not tarnish on exposure and is used in corrosive environments. (Grant & Hack's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
