Superhydrophobic Carbon Nanotubes!

by on Oct.18, 2010, under Articles, Science

Did you know that certain configurations of carbon nanotubes are scared of water? I didn’t. In reality they just repell water really well. To the point that water droplets will break up into tinier droplets, rather than get absorbed or pass through the carbon nanotubes. What’s this mean? Highly waterproof clothing! And umbrellas, and the like. Perhaps. The applications haven’t been fully experimented on.

Interested in the specifics?
