..., as suggested by Shirtcliffe et al. (2006) , submerged cavities consisting of specially designed hydrophobic material might provide oxygen necessary to run fuel cells to supply power to small underwater vehicles through a mechanism analogous to plastron respiration. However, future studies on different...

... area for water adhesion, suggesting a potential trade-off between colour and hydrophobicity. Using light microscopy, spectrometry, contact angle goniometry and self-cleaning experiments, we show that iridescent feathers of mallards, Anas platyrhynchos , are less hydrophobic than adjacent non-iridescent...

... to strong hydrophobic properties with contact angles ranging from 76.8 deg. to 146.0 deg. The nanostructures (protrusions), observed using environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM), were classified into four types according to the patterning, diameter (82–148 nm), spacing (44–117 nm) and height(159...

...G. W. G. Chalmers; J. M. Gosline; M. A. Lillie ABSTRACT An evolutionary trend towards increasing hydrophobicity of vertebrate arterial elastins suggests that there is an adaptive advantage to higher hydrophobicity. The swelling and dynamic mechanical properties of elastins from several species were...
