Abstract

In this chapter, biofouling and inorganic fouling are introduced. I then summarize fields susceptible to fouling followed by discussion of biofouling and inorganic fouling formation mechanisms, antifouling strategies from living nature, and current prevention and cleaning techniques. Finally, demonstrations of the antifouling uses of bioinspired rice leaf surfaces are presented. The data shows that micropatterned surfaces facilitate antifouling.
