Title: Superhydrophobics

A water repellent developed by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory outperforms nature at its best and could open a floodgate of commercial possibilities. The supermore »-water repellent (superhydrophobic) material, developed by John Simpson, is easy to fabricate and uses inexpensive base materials.
