Organic-inorganic hybrid materials are used potentially in various applications due to the dual properties of organic and inorganic materials in a single material. The enhanced performance of a hybrid material has lots of technical advantages than single organic or inorganic material. So far, there is no book that covers the details of hydrophobic and superhydrophobic surfaces based on organic and inorganic nanohybrids, and this book fills this gap.
The book provides details of hydrophobic and superhydrophobic surfaces and discusses methods of fabrication of these surfaces based on the organic-inorganic nanohybrids. It covers recent applications of these surfaces, especially in environmental and energy applications. It is very useful in understanding the surface property of various materials and their potential applications and is a valuable guide for graduate students and scientists who have a background in chemistry, chemical engineering, material science and engineering, nanotechnology, surface science and engineering, and industrial coating application areas.
