Amphipathic Films for Water Collection

Amphipathic Films for Water Collection will provide an easy, cost-effective water collection method by avoiding groundwater depletion. Amphipathic film with localized hydrophobic and hydrophilic regions will extract water from the atmosphere by using three key features: the most efficient hydrophobicity pattern, inexpensive extraction of gold substrate, and use of a cheap, robust, and strong self-assembling monolayer.
