    Abstract: A superhydrophobic and antibacterial surface on a glass substrate was fabricated by One-step phase separation method using the polycarbonate polymer and solvent \ non- solvent. The resulting surfaces showed a static water contact angle (CA) of 154° and excellent inhibition percentage of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria. FESEM showed that the surface... Show More

    Abstract: Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures were successfully prepared by a simple, highly efficient, and low-cost using the hydrothermal method. A superhydrophobic surface with a static water contact angle (CA) >150° has been synthesized by modifying ZnO nanostructures with 100°C at 1 h stable oleic acid (OA) as coupling agents, in order to modify their surfa...
