  • facile formation of superhydrophobic silica based surface on Aluminum Substrate with tetraethylorthosilicate and vinyltriethoxysilane as co precursor and its corrosion resistant performance in corrosive nacl aqueous solution
    Surface & Coatings Technology, 2014
    Co-Authors: Jin Liang, Hong Chen

    Abstract:

    Abstract A facile sol–gel method has been developed to create a superhydrophobic surface on Aluminum Substrate with tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS) and vinyltriethoxysilane (VTES) as co-precursor at room temperature. Firstly, nanometer sized silica particles were self assembled on the Substrate through the hydrolysis of TEOS. Then, the silica particles were modified with vinylsiloxane through the hydrolysis and condensation polymerization of VTES. The emphasis was focused on investigating the influence of the molar ratio between NH3·H2O and ethanol on the surface morphology and wetting property. The surface morphology was observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the chemical composition and bonding state of the surface were explored by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), and the wetting property of the surface was investigated by water contact angle measurement (WCA). The modified silica-based surface possessed the greatest static contact angle of 154.9°, exhibiting excellent superhydrophobic property. A hierarchical microstructure with spherical microparticles of around 2 μm decorated with nanoparticles of around 450 nm was observed on the film surface. The surface was covered by hydrophobic vinyl groups via the decoration of silica microparticles with vinyl-terminated siloxane nanoparticles as evidenced by EDS, FTIR and XPS. The corrosion resistant performance and durability of the superhydrophobic silica-based surface formed on Aluminum Substrate in corrosive NaCl solution were estimated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements. The appropriate equivalent circuit model was put forward to fit and analyze the EIS data. The electrochemical result revealed that the corrosion resistant performance of Aluminum was improved greatly by the superhydrophobic treatment.

  • fabrication and corrosion resistance of superhydrophobic hydroxide zinc carbonate film on Aluminum Substrates
    Journal of Nanomaterials, 2013
    Co-Authors: Jin Liang, Yunchu Hu, Yiqiang Wu, Hong Chen

    Abstract:

    Superhydrophobic hydroxide zinc carbonate (HZC) films were fabricated on Aluminum Substrate through a convenient in situ deposition process. Firstly, HZC films with different morphologies were deposited on Aluminum Substrates through immersing the Aluminum Substrates perpendicularly into aqueous solution containing zinc nitrate hexahydrate and urea. Secondly, the films were then modified with fluoroalkylsilane (FAS: CH3(CF2)6(CH2)3Si(OCH3)3) molecules by immersing in absolute ethanol solution containing FAS. Themorphologies, hydrophobicity, chemical compositions, and bonding states of the films were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), water contact angle measurement (CA), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), respectively. It was shown by surface morphological observation that HZC films displayed different microstructures such as microporous structure, rose petal-like structure, block-shaped structure, and pinecone-like structure by altering the deposition condition. A highest water contact angle of 156.2° was obtained after FAS modification. Moreover, the corrosion resistance of the superhydrophobic surface on Aluminum Substrate was investigated using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements. The EIS measurements’ results revealed that the superhydrophobic surface considerably improved the corrosion resistance of Aluminum.

  • controlled growth of superhydrophobic films by sol gel method on Aluminum Substrate
    Applied Surface Science, 2010
    Co-Authors: Yiling Chen, Wei Liu

    Abstract:

    Abstract Superhydrophobic surface was prepared by sol–gel method on Aluminum Substrate via immersing the clean pure Aluminum Substrate into the solution of zinc nitrate hexahydrate (Zn(NO3)2·6H2O) and hexamethylenetetraamine (C6H12N4) at different molar ratios and unchanged 0.04 mol/L total concentration, then heated at 95 °C in water bath for 1.5 h, subsequently modified with 18 alkanethiols or stearic acid. When the molar ratios of Zn(NO3)2·6H2O and C6H12N4 were changed from 10:1 to 1:1 the contact angle was higher than 150°. The best prepared surface had a high water contact angle of about 154.8°, as well as low angle hysteresis of about 3°. The surface of prepared films using Zn(NO3)2·6H2O and C6H12N4 composed of ZnO and Zn–Al LDH, and Al. SEM images of the film showed that the resulting surface exhibits different flower-shaped wurtzite zinc oxide microstructure and porous Zn–Al LDH. The special flowerlike and porous architecture, along with the low surface energy leads to the surface superhydrophobicity.
