Magnetic-Responsive Superwetting Surface
Magnetic-responsive materials surfaces, especially for the magnetic-responsive superwetting surface, has attracted more and more attention in basic research and practical applications in intelligent fluid-controllable devices, owing to their advantages of in situ control, fast response, remote control and low energy consumption. This chapter focuses on the magnetic-responsive wettability on the superwetting surface and their typical applications, particularly on switchable wettability on magnetic-responsive surfaces and their applications such as tunable adhesion surface, microstructure fabrication, droplet actuation, and smart separation. Finally, our personal points of the future research prospect of this research are discussed.
