Graphene-Based Nanostructured Hybrid Materials for Conductive and Superhydrophobic Functional Coatings
Abstract:A bi-functional, conductive and superhydrophobic, graphene-based nanostructured hybrid material was fabricated. In order to construct the bi-functional hybrid material, carbon nanotubes (CNT) and polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) were introduced. The water contact angle (WCA) of the graphene/POSS/CNT coating reached about 155 and its conductivity was about 1∼10 S/cm. Such graphene-based nanostructured hybrid materials could have great potential as an antistatic and self-cleaning coating in various applications.
