To recover the superhydrophobicity, the sample was heated to 200[degrees]C and then the acetone solution of dodecanoic acid was sprayed onto the hot surface with a flow rate of about 0.
In this article, we utilized dodecanoic acid as the low surface energy material to modify the prepared coating.
It can be seen that several new peaks appear in the FTIR profile after surface modification by spraying the dodecanoic acid solution on the hot surface (as shown in Fig.
6 confirm that both physisorbed and chemisorbed dodecanoic acid molecules exist in the surface layer.
The removal of the low-energy dodecanoic acid layer and the exposing of high-energy metal or metal oxide surface elevate the surface energy rapidly, and thus lead the surface wettability change from superhydrophobicity to superhydrophilicity.
79 min were identified as dodecanoic acid (C12:0), tetradecanoic acid (C14:0) and hexadecanoic acid (C16:0) respectively.
