 hydrophobic materials – new innovations
The new hydrophobic material or superhydrophobic material that was created by a team of MIT nanomaterial scientists and mechanical engineers is said to be 10,000 times more hydrophobic than current hydrophobic surfaces. MIT’s superhydrophobic materials are set to revolutionize the efficiency of fossil fuel power plants.

 hydrophobic | definition & examples (molecules & substances)
Hydrophobic materials in biology are substances that do not dissolve in water, repel water, or are themselves repelled by water molecules. Examples include greases, waxes, steroids, alkanes, and fats. Hydrophobic materials exhibit characteristics of nonpolarity, formation of micelles, and an affinity to bond to other nonpolar substances.

 hydrophobic surface - an overview | sciencedirect topics
8.2 Hydrophobic Surface. Hydrophobic surface is a surface that has the ability to repel water [1]. The term hydrophobicity was derived from two Greek words that are hydro that means water and phobos that means fear; thus, hydrophobic surfaces can be define as material that tend to repel with water.

 explained: hydrophobic and hydrophilic - mit news
Materials with a special affinity for water — those it spreads across, maximizing contact — are known as hydrophilic. Those that naturally repel water, causing droplets to form, are known as hydrophobic. Both classes of materials can have a significant impact on the performance of power plants, electronics, airplane wings and desalination ...

 hydrophobe - wikipedia
Hydrophobic materials are used for oil removal from water, the management of oil spills, and chemical separation processes to remove non-polar substances from polar compounds. Hydrophobic is often used interchangeably with lipophilic, "fat-loving".

 hydrophobic - definition and examples | biology dictionary
Hydrophobic literally means “the fear of water”. Hydrophobic molecules and surfaces repel water. Hydrophobic liquids, such as oil, will separate from water. Hydrophobic molecules are usually nonpolar, meaning the atoms that make the molecule do not produce a static electric field. In polar molecules these opposite regions of electrical ...
