Abstract

In this paper, taking candle soot as an intermediate, we created rough, superhydrophilic Accepted 8 November 2015 and transparent surfaces on glass trough calcination of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) at 550 C. Subse- Available online 12 November 2015 quently, a novel chemical vapour deposition (CVD) modification was conducted by heating PDMS at ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ 330 C in air to give the surfaces a water contact angle (WCA) of 170 ± 0.5 and a sliding angle (SA) of 0 .
