Following rapid development over the last decade, superhydrophobic coatings have become very promising for practical applications. Superhydrophobic polyester textiles coated with silicone nanofilaments are fabricated by chemical vapor deposition of trichloromethylsilane as described by Junping Zhang and Stefan Seeger on page 4699. The coated textiles feature superwetting properties, flexibility, excellent reusability, oil/water separation efficiency, and selective oil absorption capacity, making them excellent candidates for, e.g., practical oil absorption.
