Abstract:Superhydrophobic zinc oxide nanotowers have been grown successfully on sodalime glass substrates by chemical bath deposition (CBD). Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) images have revealed the presence of randomly oriented hexagonal patterned ZnO nanotowers. These ZnO nanotowers were passivated using stearic acid (SA) molecules for hydrophobic applications. Water contact angle of greater than 160o has been achieved after SA passivation with a contact angle hysteresis less than 10o.
