(Figure Presented) Thermally stable superhydrophobic fabrics with multifunctionality were fabricated through the combination of sol-gel chemistry and electrospinning. MTES sols were electrospun into fibers, in which fiber morphology was controlled by the gelation time. The resulting superhydrophobic fabrics are not only very stable and heat-resistant but perform with high filtration efficiency, enabling emerging applications for smart materials and devices.
