FIG. 1.

Scanning electron microscope images [(a) and (b)], showing morphology of CN biopolymer spray cast from biopolymer/solvent/nonsolvent (biolubricant) ternary system. (c) Measured static water contact angle and hysteresis on the biopolymer coating as a function of biolubricant/solvent weight ratio.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

(a) Scanning electron microscope morphology of biopolymer/SBS rubber/organoclay nanocomposite coating and (b) wetting characteristics of the nanocomposite as a function of biopolymer/rubber ratio and added organoclay concentration.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(a) Scanning electron microscope morphology of biopolymer/NR/organoclay nanocomposite coating and (b) wetting characteristics of the nanocomposite as a function of biopolymer/rubber ratio and added organoclay concentration. No vulcanites were used for the NR latex.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Scanning electron microscope images [(a) and (b)] showing surface morphology of the fluoroacrylic latex reinforced superhydrophobic biopolymer-clay nanocomposite coatings. (c) Demonstration of the self-cleaning process using carbon black powder to simulate contaminated nanocomposite surfaces (enhanced online).
