Superhydrophobic states of 2D nanomaterials controlled by atomic defects can modulate cell adhesion. Academic Article uri icon


  • We introduced a new concept to the control of wetting characteristics by modulating the degree of atomic defects of two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide nanoassemblies of molybdenum disulfide. This work shed new light on the role of atomic vacancies on wetting characteristic that can be leveraged to develop a new class of superhydrophobic surfaces for various applications without altering their topography.
