Russian scientists have explained the superhydrophobic coating properties of boron nitride nanotubes

Boron nitride films possess good hydrophilic properties and wettability with water, while the nanotube coating made from the same material, on the contrary, exhibit hydrophobic properties. How material which is normally perfectly wetted by the water repellent is? This question is answered by Russian scientists in their work, published in the latest issue of the journal "Russian Nanotechnology."
