NSF publishes NBD Nano’s efforts with UIC to improve condensation efficiency

“NBD Nanotechnologies, a Boston-based company funded by NSF’s Small Business Technology Transfer program, aims to scale up the durability and functionality of surface coatings for industrial use.

One of the most impactful applications for superhydrophobic or hydrophobic research is improved condensation efficiency. When water vapor condenses to a liquid, it typically forms a film. That film is a barrier between the vapor and the surface, making it more difficult for other droplets to form. If that film can be prevented by whisking away droplets immediately after they condense–say, with a superhydrophobic surface–the rate of condensation increases…”
