Title
Photoresponsive surfaces with controllable wettability
Abstract

In this paper, current progress in the area of photoresponsive surfaces with controllable wettability is reviewed, including mainly surface conversion between wetting and anti-wetting, prepared from inorganic oxides (e.g., titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and tungsten oxide) or/and photoactive organic molecules (e.g., azobenzene, and spiropyran), and movement of liquid droplets driven by molecular machines (e.g., molecular shuttles such as rotaxanes). Photoresponsive controllable wettability originates from a transition between the bistable states of photoresponsive materials. The exploration of the basic mechanisms provides a basis for the construction of novel smart responsive surfaces.
